Interesting exhibits of remedies from medieval times. Make syou appreciate even more modern medicine. Easy to find and easy to see in a short time.

This museum is in a room in a working chemists shop on the corner of the Town Hall Square. It shows some of the starnge potions once used and also the history of what is the oldest chemist shop in Europe

The old exhibits are located next to an operating pharmacy. There are many interesting items on display.

This Chemist's shop has been in continuous existence since at least 1422, and probably earlier. Interesting but I would suggest not really inspiring unless you happen to be in the profession.

There is still an active modern Pharmacist at work amongst all sorts of historical artefacts relating to medicine. Some of the old remedies on display are quite gruesome. Glad that one does not have to use them today!

Dates back to 1422 and still serving customers. Atmospheric and contains an interesting small museum (free entry) with examples of early medicinal ingredients - anyone for dried toad or bees?

An old-style apothecary with a small museum, walk in while roaming the city, nothing special, but a great stop for cold weather. Try to find the crocodile.

The only pharmacy in Europe that has been working in the same place for a long time, since 1422. Inside you can find active pharmacy and in the other room you can find pharmacy room- museum: interwsting stuff in the display.

It's one of Europes oldest pharmacies, still operation to day, but you can experience a brief exhibition of healing methods in the Middle Age. Really interesting to see and read about the medieval best practices.
