The pharmacy was founded in the early 15th century and has run continuously in the same building ever since. Explore the on-site museum, which displays a small collection of historic medical tools and others used by physicians in the past. You'll find many relics from the business over the years, including an array of medieval and Renaissance-era remedies. For a souvenir, pick up some claret, a spiced Germanic wine, from the pharmacy's gift shop.
