Here we are in another old area of Lucerne. We have walked here from where the River Spikes are, along the Burgerstrasse to what looks like a square with a Fountain. It's another interesting fountain that has masks and some little cherubs at the top of it.
Some buildings here date back to the 15th century, like the Apotheke shop which is still open for Business. This is an interesting looking building with a turret, and I liked the old wooden door!

Pfistergasse was here in earlier times because it was near to the city mills and because the population feared fire originating in the bakeries.
Near the River Reuss at the start of Pfistergasse street, is Lucerne's Historical Museum.

Address: Pfistergasse street
