Not that easy to get a medicine


So, in Germany (at least in some small cities) it is not that easy to buy a medicine on a Sunday night. I got sick the other day and found out that there was only one Apotheke open in the whole city. My husband had to look it up online and bike there. To my surprise, I saw that he had to pay some extra fee (2.50 EUR) for using the drugstore’s service on Sunday. I am not sure if the fee is always the same or not. My medicine cost 4.70 EUR, so the service fee was quite a lot to pay. Half a price! Lucky us the drugstore that was open that night was close by. Drugstores take turn in working on Sunday and being open 24 hours. You must check it online before going to buy a medicine. Better never get sick, especially on the weekend!

  1. Yes! My husband once had an eye problem on a Saturday morning, and when I called the hospital nearby they referred me to their eye specialist who was only available for emergencies for a couple hours in the afternoon. You really have to be disciplined enough to only get sick on weekdays in Germany. πŸ˜‰
