The striking town hall on the main square in Schwyz is known for its historic and impressive façade painting.
Das repräsentative Gebäude auf dem Hauptplatz ist nicht zu übersehen. Die Fassadenmalerei zur 600-Jahrfeier der Eidgenossenschaft stammt von Ferdinand Wagner. Die Gemälde von Landammann Stauffacher und der Schlacht am Morgarten sind besonders erwähnenswert. Täfer und Kassettendecken der Säle zählen zu den kostbaren Arbeiten dieser Gattung. Das Rathaus ist Sitz des Kantonsparlaments und des Bezirksgerichts.
Schwyz Town Hall is not open to the general public; however, it is possible to book a guided tour. During this guided history tour, you will not only get to admire the external façade but are also taken through the town hall’s interior. Depending on the availability of the rooms, you will have the opportunity to see the cantonal council hall, the court hall, the conference room, the prison cells in the basement, and the anterooms. This is only possible if the rooms are not being used for special meetings or negotiations, however.
