Amavita Apotheke Zermatt




to Amavita Apotheke Zermatt, its name since it was founded on the Bahnhofstrasse in Zermatt in 1886, implying that the pharmacy has always had an international customer base.

The pharmacy has kept pace with the times and nowadays ranks among state-of-the-art pharmacies in Switzerland, being the first to equip itself with fully automated, chilled robot-controlled storage of drugs and cosmetics.
