24-hour pharmacies

imagerWe’ve all been there. It’s 8pm or  3 am or a Saturday afternoon or a Sunday and someone in your family isn’t feeling so great and you need medicine RIGHT NOW …. but where to turn given the fact that pharmacies (Apotheke in German) usually close by 6pm during the week and shut down Saturday afternoon for the weekend?

Consult this handy website that lists “emergency” pharmacies around Vienna that are open during the night and on weekends (locations rotate). The list is updated regularly and provides phone numbers and addresses. You might have to ring a doorbell and talk with the pharmacist through a window but you will get help and hopefully the medicine you need!
