Theke

This is a word I like. It just sounds cool to me.

die Theke - counter, bar (in a store)

I have never actually heard someone use this word. Though I have seen it used in signs and advertisements a few time. For example at the movie theater. You buy your popcorn at the Theke.


Für jeden das Richtige - An der Theke! --- The right one for everyone - at the counter!
The word Apotheke has Theke in it. Though I am not sure it is actually connected. Apotheke comes from the Greek word apothēkē which means 'store house.' I haven't been able to find out the origin of Theke. If anyone knows, please share.

die Apotheke - Pharmacy
