Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I've tried "toilet" in different languages but it shows only incorrectly mapped toilets.

If you mean the search box on the home page at www.openstreetmap.org have you tried "toilet near <place>" (which seems to work for me).

Yes, it works, thanks :) frowns any alias for "near my location"? Can't find it skimming through the wiki page for Nominatim

this should work - but for some reason doesn't: "toilets near [-1.48,53.39]" I'll have a look at why it is broken.

to twain: One major drawback: it's not an alias. It would be tolerable if OSM showed coordinates somewhere, but in current state it's not comfortable at all. Anyway, I appreciate the info :)

The overpass-turbo interface is also really nice for that kind of search. Put key=amenity and value=toilets in the search box. It defaults to searching in the currently-visible bbox. Example here.

I must be doing something wrong. Like this: "key=amenity value=toilets"? Also, it combined the warning about blocked cookies with "Browser not supported" which is highly misleading. But I'm not in the mood to file a bug report yet.

Oh, I had to press the "Run" button. Not really obvious.

But the answer is very helpful anyway, thanks :)

Click "Wizard" button and type amenity=toilets, then "build and run query"

Another options are:


Some bug in window size detection, try resizing your browser window if you see yellow background.

openstreetmap.ru (Russian only)

POI -> Услуги (third from the end) -> Туалет (second from the end)
