Trip Planner: Europe / Austria / Austrian Alps / Salzburg Region / Salzburg / Alte furst-erzbischofliche Hofapotheke
Tucked away within Altenmarkt, Alte furst-erzbischofliche Hofapotheke represents the oldest existing pharmacy in Salzburg. While maintaining its original appearance from the 18th and 19th centuries, it remains a legally functioning pharmacy meeting all modern standards. The current facade dates to 1910, when the apothecary moved to its current location. The pharmacy stocks a range of medicine for common ailments, including a variety of herbal items--but even if you're feeling well, it's worth a visit for the history alone. Photography inside the pharmacy is not allowed. Use our Salzburg trip planner to arrange your visit to Alte furst-erzbischofliche Hofapotheke and other attractions in Salzburg.
Alte furst-erzbischofliche Hofapotheke Reviews
Die „alte fürsterzbischöfliche Hofapotheke“ am Alten Markt ist die älteste noch bestehende Apotheke in Salzburg.

The court pharmacist Heinrich Merody founded it in 1591 and operated it in a house opposite the residence, the seat of the archbishops. The location changed even more often and with it the inventory. According to tradition, a pharmacy was reserved for the prince archbishops and regents. It was not until 1588 that the pharmacy officially became the court pharmacy of the landlord. The history can be traced back to the Middle Ages. The documents and documents from this period as well as the designs of the participating artists and craftsmen are archived in the Museum Augusteum. Even today, the original rococo device of the official from 1777 as well as the antique recipe table with a scale holder and wrought iron frame is still in operation. In the same way, old tin vessels can still be found in daily use. In 1903, the site was moved to the opposite house Alter Markt 6. You can still see the alchimist signs for elements such as silver and gold as well as the symbols of old pharmacy weights on the walls.
ザルツブルクの冬は温度は低いのですが、積もるほどの雪が降ることは珍しいのです。前日の雪が街を覆って、普段では見られない雪景色が見れるのが楽しい感じです。 この古い薬局があるアルターマルクトも雪に囲まれています。 more »The temperature is low in Salzburg in the winter, but it is rare that it snows as much as it accumulates. The snow of the previous day covered the town, and it is feeling that it is pleasant to see the snow scene which is not usually seen. The Altermarkt, which has this old pharmacy, is also surrounded by snow.
Next to Tomaselli, Fürst is one of the oldest and most traditional coffeehouses in Salzburg and Austria. If you go to Fürst make sure you try one of the original Mozartkugeln. The golden ones which are sold everywhere in Salzburg and not the original ones, the Fürst ones (silver blue packaging) are. Also try their amazing coffee and homemade cakes!
The beautiful pharmacy is the oldest in the city. A bunch of all sorts of jars on the shelves beautifully dressed ayuprovisors.
