Old City Squares
Weinmarkt, Hischenplatz, Kornmarkt
Historical buildings clad in frescos border the Old Town on the right bank of the River Reuss at a few picturesque squares.
The Weinmarkt, where Lucerne swore a federal oath with the cantons of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden in 1332, is especially attractive. Equally attractive is the Hirschenplatz square, named after an old inn dating from the Middle Ages, and the Kornmarkt square, which features the Town Hall and the beautifully painted Pfistern guildhall.
