The first Gas Station in the World

During her drive from Mannheim to Pforzheim, in 1888, Bertha Benz ran out of gas near Wiesloch. She had to stop to buy some at the local pharmacy. Since then the pharmacy has garnered attention for being the “first gas station in the world”.

The city pharmacy exists since the 18th century. The first pharmacist from the pharmacy to garner nationwide attention was Johann Phillip Bronner (1792-1864), who owned the pharmacy from 1916 on. He is an important pioneer in the viniculture of Baden.
