Is there any semantic difference between "Bad" and "Toilette"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wataya

yes, there is: in a 'Bad' or 'Badezimmer' (in contrast to a 'Toilette') you'll normally find a shower and/or a bathtub.

Why is it just das Bad and not das Badezimmer? I would have assumed there was quite a difference.

"Bad" vs "Badezimmer"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LarsThornb

In Swedish we have the same distinction: toalett och badrum :)

Has Badezimmer fallen out of usage? It was the word for bathroom I was taught at school (a long time ago).
