Now we are stopping at lovely Weinmarkt fountain in the square of the same name. This square dates back to between the 15th & 17th centuries and is where Passion Play's were held. Can you imagine it full of people enjoying the play?
In the centre, the Gothic Fountain depicts St. Mauritius (patron saint of warriors).

We have a walk around here, as many of the buildings have 16th century frescoes.
Haus zur Sonne, which is painted light Green, has the 1928 fresco, "Marriage at Canaan" by Eduard Renggli. Another frescoed building is Mullersche Apotheke, a "drugstore" from 1530.
