Bloodletting and noble life

What is stinking gum? Who needed arsenic? Who had to pay luxury tax? The Qwensel House is much more than a Pharmacy Museum. There is a part of the museum that is over 300 years old and houses an 18th century gentry’s apartment, once occupied by the famous professor of medicine Josef Pipping.

On our guided tour you will find out about 19th century pharmacy business and learn how the gentry lived in the late 18th century.

The tour can be tailored according to the customer’s wishes.
