Brunnen
Kleinstadtstrasse

After the Battle of Morgarten (1315), in which Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden crushed the Austrian army, a new pact was signed between the three allies, probably on the spot where this beautiful chapel stands. This Brunnen Pact strengthened the alliance of the first three Swiss cantons and the Confederate Chapel commemorates this event.
