Invasion

Okay, I can understand banning naked German hikers, but is it really illegal in Switzerland to flush the toilet after 10 pm?

"Invasion of the Naked German Hikers"-- sounds like a 50s horror film. Thanks to someone who should not want it known that he forwards this stuff.

Definitely not illegal. However, most Swiss are renters rather than owners, they tend to live in close quarters, and the rules of conduct in apartment houses can be quite draconic.

A quiet period from 10PM to 7AM is customary, and, while prohibiting flushing toilets might be somewhat on the drastic side, running a bath or taking a shower during that time are frowned upon / prohibited in some multi-family houses.
