The construction of the Town Hall was allowed by a privilege from the Moravian Margrave Jost of Luxembourg in 1378. It is a four-winged building with an inner courtyard. The oriel on the south side is the gothic Chapel of St. Jerome. It is richly decorated.
A number of original vaulted rooms, including a ceremonial hall (now a Wedding hall) have been preserved to presentday. The interior of the Chapel of St. Jerome is decorated with a unique ribbed vault.

Directions: In the middle of the Main Square.
