Our pharmacy was founded in 1886 by pharmacist Alfred Blumenthal and has its location on Gumpendorfer Straße 30 in the Viennese district of Mariahilf. It has been called SAINT CHARLES since 19 November 2006. Certain family entanglements and the traditional European medicine are to blame.
On the same day, the Saint Charles Cosmothecary (natural beauty) and The Saint Charles Alimentary (restaurant) were founded.
Why all of this? Quite simply: The herbs we find on our doorstep are used in our pharmaceutical remedies, they act as main compounds in our cosmetic products and you can eat them. One and the same herb.
Pharmacist Alexander Ehrmann continues the tradition of his family as a pharmacist in the 6th generation.
The Saint Charles Apotheke in Vienna 1060, Gumpendorfer Straße 30 is the ethical backbone and the basis of all companies. The pharmacy carries all known allopathic drugs as well as countless specialties from traditional European medicine.
