Bis zum 16.Jahrhundert Fischmarkt. Mit dem Abbruch der mittelalterlichen Schaal, einer zweigeschossigen, hölzernen Markthalle für den Verkauf von Fleisch, Brot und Leder, entstand 1481 der Platz in seiner heutigen Form.

Steinmetz Konrad Lux schuf 1481 den spätgotischen Brunnen (Original im Historischen Museum).

Der Fischmarkt war im Mittelalter politischer Mittelpunkt und Zentrum des Marktbereiches. An seiner Südwestecke stand bis 1447 das erste Rathaus. Der Platz war gesäumt von den Trinkstuben der Gesellschaften zu Metzgern, Gerbern, Schuhmachern und Wirten.

Nach 1481 wurden hier geistliche und weltliche Spiele aufgeführt.
