Useful combination
Status: In use

Public showers/baths. May be run as a local amenity by the government, or part of commercial provisions. May charge a fee.


Place a node (Node) centrally at the location of the showers amenities and tag it amenity=shower. If possible use an area Area for a shower building and add a node Node building=entrance to the entrance on the outline. (This is helpful for blind navigation users).

Tags to use in combination

Standard combination tags:

  • name=* for the name of the showers (if it has a name)
  • opening_hours=*
  • fee=yes/no
  • supervised=yes/no/interval (whether the showers are staffed with a cleaner; these showers are usually tidier, and the cleaner might expect a tip)
  • wheelchair=yes/no/limited

Ideas for "access" tags:

Ideas for additional tags:

Showers inside places

Camping sites often have showers for customers, usually in a central services building.

Similar tags

  • amenity=public_bath - Facility also with bathtubs. May offer more service than simple showers.


Shower sign at Kings Cross (probably node 706106387)
INT-1 symbol for showers, used in small scale harbour and yacht maps to indicate where visitors can take a shower

We could do with a better photo illustrating a shower, preferably a specifically public shower.
