Doctors and Hospitals

Contact details of doctors and hospitals can be found in the Health Portal of the City of Bonn. You can search a database for doctors by proximity to your home, by medical specialty or by foreign language skills.

The Healthcare Guide for Migrants offers a good overview of doctors with foreign language skills.


The opening hours of German pharmacies are rather short and do not always act in accordance with regular shopping hours. Please note that there is always a pharmacy on-duty around the clock. A list of pharmacies on-duty can be found on the door of every pharmacy. You can also check which pharmacy is on duty here.
