Its ceremonial hall can only be visited with a group from 5 persons onwards, so I missed out on this one. Built 15th century. This imposing and majestic building was rebuilt in renaissance style in 1555 (Hans Spatz), and got its current Baroque appearance in 1727. On its facade chiaroscuro murals of St. Roch and St. Florian of Lorch by local painter Jan Bonanely, four large brass gargoyles on the roof in the shape of a dragon (Ondřej Grelinger), the 4 life-size allegorical statues depicting virtues: wisdom, prudence, courage and justice (Josef Dietrich, originals are on display on the first floor), Carillon in the Middle Tower. In the ceremonial hall a vaulted ceiling is decorated by a fresco depicting the biblical scene of Solomon’s Judgement dating back to 1730 (Jan Adam Schöpf).
