      It appears to be an air gap of some type. What is it connected to?

              Difference between air gap & air break is the flood level...break can be below the flood level, gap is above.
              I say the thing is a fingernail bidet.

                  An air-break is a separation between the bottom of a pipe and the flood rim of a fixture or receptor. The air-gap is the measurement of the gap (atmosphere) of the air-break.

                    It was on the shower wall at a place they stayed at in Germany.

                        I'm going out on a limb here but it appears to be a chrome plated luftschaltstrecke.

                          4 years of German, plus AP German and I can no longer speak it. However, I am going to go out on a limb here and say you are sticking to your story and voting for air break
