  • We were impressed by it while it is mounted, not missing nor a single detail, it is worth visiting it and recreation in all its rooms

  • I found a very interesting Museum, which is next to the castle of Heidelberg. For those who work with health, it is exciting to see the formulas and medicines.

  • Inside Heidelberg Castle houses the German pharmacy Museum. It is included in the cost of entry, and is very interesting. There are places with very innovative spaces for contemporary eyes, for example a basement where are the different appliances and tools to manufacture medicines.

  • LOVE IT.. Fascinating to see as a medical professional. Some great information and an amazing display of the pharmacy through time
  • Loved the exhibit. Especially loved how richly decorated some of the artifacts were.
  • Rich presentation of the pharmacy history in Germany. Many things to see and read. Free entry because you've already paid to come into the castle. Might take your about an hour or so to go through all the exhibits. There are English translations for each section.
  • Great one. It teaches lot of things .
  • If you're even semi curious about medicine and how it used to be done this is worth checking out!
