Alte Apotheke – For Absinthe Fans, and Fine Spirits Lovers
The surroundings are ideal: we‘ve taken over the premises of the old Stühlinger Pharmacy, where we‘d been admiring the original interior for years, with its impressive shelving, glass service counter and wooden-paneled walls with integrated old-fashioned clocks. So when we heard that the pharmacy was closing its doors after 116 years providing medicine to the citizens of Freiburg, we saw the perfect opportunity to open an absinthe shop.
