Werndl House

The house was originally in the possession of the family of the Schmiedels of Seeberg from the 15th century. In 1687, it was acquired by the family of the Werndls of Lehenstein whose coat of arms may be found in the courtyard behind the well-preserved spacious Gothic hall.

 

A 15th century Gothic building that underwent Baroque reconstruction in the 17th century. In 1625, leader of the Imperial forces during the Thirty-Year War Albrecht von Wallenstein stayed here with the owner of the building, mayor Georg Werndl from Chlumeček. All that remains of the large Gothic entrance hall is the Gothic door portal. The hall itself was arched over when harmonising the level of the ground floor as part of reconstruction work in the first half of the 20th century with Prussian vaults leading into straight arches. The frontage of this four-storey, four-axis building facing into the square only features first floor moulding and rustication on the ground floor. Neither the three-floor steep roof with four rows of dormers nor the segmentation of the frontage above the crown moulding and extension have undergone any significant changes since modifications carried out in 1850. A three-storey courtyard wing that stands adjacent to building no. 474 also pertains to the structure.

Accessible to the public only during operating hours of the businesses residing here.
