For prescription medication from your doctor or over the counter medicines you will need to look for an "Apotheke" sign, which will also have a green cross sign outside the shop, or alternatively a large red "A". There are a lot of pharmacies around the Bonn area.

During the weekend you will find that only certain pharmacies will be on duty. The address of the nearest pharmacy on duty can be found on the front window of any pharmacy or by checking the link.

Enter your zip code where it says “Apotheke finden” in the upper right corner, press “Notdienst” and you will get a map and addresses of the nearest emergency pharmacies.
