The colourful frescoed building in the heart of the old town dates back to 1602, the impressive painting, however, is a replica, which fits to the restaurant inside. The rustic decor with carnival masks on the walls represents how a visitor may perceive Lucerne of old, but you are unlikely to meet a local in here. The Swiss signature dishes of cheese or meat fondue, raclette and rösti can be ordered throughout the year. We experienced the waiting staff, however, as rather unfriendly. The restaurant name refers to the legend of Brother Fritschi who left some money to the Safran guild on condition that during carnival they serve wine to the poor for free. Now that's a good deed!
