Schwörhaus, Ulm: 5 reviews and 6 photos
This beautiful balcony is the place where Ulm?s Lord Mayor ? a funny Social Democrat named Ivo Gönner at the moment, and since quite a while ? opens the Schwörmontag celebrations every third Monday in July.
He first gives a review of the most important city issues of the past twelve months, then he lays out the plans for the next twelve months, and finally he renews the historic oath from 1397, promising to be a good mayor. The historic formula ends the speech, with the mayor swearing to be a true and honest representative of the rich and the poor, in German: ?? Reichen und Armen ein gemeiner Mann zu sein in allen gleichen, gemeinsamen und redlichen Dingen ohne allen Vorbehalt, so wahr mir Gott helfe?.
