Façade photo of famous Fritschi restaurant in Lucerne, old building from 16th century.
Legendary brother Fritschi plays an important role in Lucerne's tradition associated with fun and festivity – especially the Lucerne carnival (Fasnacht).
The story of the legendary Brother Fritschi plays an important role in Lucerne's Carnival tradition. No one really knows the true story of Brother Fritschi.
One legend which goes back to around 1450 and the most probable explanation is that there was a farmer (or farmhand) living outside town making jokes whenever he came to town.
Medieval town clerk and chronicler reports that Fritschi left some money to Lucerne’s Saffron Guild on condition that they serve wine to the poor during carnival (Fasnacht) festivities. The guild is still fulfilling this obligation today.
This painted facade refers to mask's of "brother Fritschi," and his family.
There is no shortage of colorfully embellished structures in Lucerne, murals like this are everywhere in the old town.

I like very much how you filled the whole frame with this extraordinary façade and how you illuminated all its details. The images are very attractive and intriguing, the viewer is enticed to study and associate them even if they are not familiar with the traditional characters and stories illustrated. You balanced the lighting effectively and the colours are well defined too. The human presence is intriguing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

A superb capture of this amazingly decorated façade. Ideally exposed and with excellent colours and clarity. The two men passing by and wondering whether to go in are a nice bonus.

il ristorante è solo uin'etichetta m,a le piotture della facciata sono molto interessanti e conservate in maniera eccellente.
D'altronde in Svizzera il popolo ha una profonda educazione per la cura di queste cose.
Ottima foto, bei colori ed eccellente nitidezza.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Vraiment réussi cette peinture sur les murs pour attirer les clients au restaurant. On peut passer beaucoup de temps à la regarder pour se creuser l'appétit. Une très belle netteté des détails.

A restaurant with a façade like this could not be overlooked by anyone even if they don't know about its history. The young men at the entrance are not aware of their important roles in this photo. They add the human presence that I find almost necessary for this kind of picture. They transform this into an interesting and vivid street-shot.

Hi Miro, very good picture of this interesting restaurant facade, beautifully captured in this interesting image with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy Sunday.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Fabulous painted facade, Miro, I think I saw this place in the old town Luzern.
Great clear outlines, even with shades mix with lit area on the wall - you managed a fine photo.
Have a nice weekend,

Another beautiful façade! What work has gone into this place to make that work of art on the walls, so impressive to see! There does seem to be a slightly dark element to the artwork, but I always like that anyway. Very well seen and shot.
All the best
PaulVDV (22085) 2014-03-22 12:49
The two visitors at the entrance look quite small compared with the figures on top of the facade.
Not only the drawings but also the colours ensure that this restaurant certainly doesn't stay unnoticed.
The artist had a keen eye for more detailed work.
I didn't know that the old town of Luzern was famous for such murals.
Best regards, Paul

Looks to be a very big painting there and amazingly created by the talented artists, indeed a fascinating colourful artwork with a strong historical content. It's also a great idea to brighten up the old building, very nicely captured in your shot with adequate clarity and sharp in focus. Excellent, TFS
shreya2000 (1134) 2014-03-22 22:08
Very nice capture of the restaurant. The walls are very good. Thanks for sharing.
jcpix (13658) 2014-03-22 22:17
I have also taken a picture of this same building, a virtual "must" for anyone that visits this great city! :) So incredibly vibrant and colorful, it's impossible to miss...and that's a good thing! Love the fact you included the people, adding a touch of scale and human element to the visual. With many available, this is the one that's always stood out in my mind. Wonderfully composed to best showcase this fine public artwork, and I like the fact you caught this with a mild shadow cutting a diagonal line across the frame for added impact. Bravo good sir! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take good care.

Lovely shot of the facade again.Very well captured,TFS.

You're capturing well this restaurant by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the restaurant's facade with the colorful paintings in medieval times. The building looks like that the ground floor is restaurant and the above of the second floor is housing apartment. Even so, there are paintings of a novel design.
ktanska (24758) 2014-03-23 2:13
I think I have missed this wonderful looking building, although it is not far from the river. Really original paintings, I'm sure it would be great reataurant to visit. Well framed shot, though I think you've overdone perspective correction.
Subhogen (4065) 2014-03-23 4:32
Nice view of wonderful coloured facade depicting historical figures. It is a great idea to link the restaurant to a historical figure and paint the outside wall with these colourful faces, it will make it popular :-) Well spotted this unique facade and thanks for presenting it with a good note describing the significance of the paintings.
adramad (37993) 2014-03-23 10:01
Wow ....... really spectacular facade of this building, which has masterfully captured all, thanks to the quality of the image can be delighted with the amount of figures and details of these beautiful paintings, my congratulations on this impeccable work .
Excellent resolution and very good focus.
Beautiful colorful in very natural shades.
Enjoy a Happy Sunday.

The presence of the persons is adding life to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the facade of the building. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.
