Pharmacy

History

The Bellevue pharmacy looks back on a long tradition. It is one of the largest pharmacies in Switzerland with approximately 55 employees.

The first pharmacy at Bellevue was opened in 1887 in a small shop. In 1931, Dr. Arnold Lobeck, a seventh-generation apothecary, acquired the pharmacy and gave it its current name. As an antroposophist, he was committed to offer a wide range of remedies according to the philosophy of Dr. Rudolf Steiner and Samuel Hahnemann. Until today, the Bellevue pharmacy has kept to this endeavour.

Since 24 June 1976, the pharmacy is run 24 hours a day and is available as a reliable place to seek answers to health questions. In November 2005, Dr. Roman Schmid took on the management.
