Seeing the Pharmacy museum during the visit to the castle was unexpected. The displays were very good and it was extremely interesting to see how much medicine they had in the past and also that there was a difference for children and adults.....

It is part of the Heidelberg Castle visit. Great corridors and tunnels that outline the history behind the beliefs and profession of pharmacy and their products.
