Our history

In 2007, Claude Hostert-Pfeiffer, pharmacist, took over one of the oldest pharmacies in Luxembourg, the “Mouerenapdikt”. Since then, the pharmacy has moved and also changed its name. It is now called Ginkgo-Apdikt in reference to the oldest tree on earth: the Ginkgo biloba.

An ideal location

In 2009, the pharmacy moves to its brand new premises at 3 Val Sainte-Croix near the public transportation of the Place de l’Étoile but also the CHL.
