Visiting a Pharmacy

The Danish Pharmacy

In Denmark, a pharmacy is called apotek, and is typically open Monday – Friday, 9:00 – 17:00. When entering, you take a number and wait to be called. There will be pharmacists working behind the counter, who will listen to your needs and make a recommendation. Over the counter medication is more limited in Denmark than you are likely used to in the U.S., thus the pharmacist’s recommendation may be to visit a doctor to receive a prescription.
