The Late Gothic gate was originally build as part of the city fortification. It was reconstructed in 1872 in the same style. It marks the west end of the old town.
The current presence of the fortification is a partly reconstruction of the 15th, and partly of the 19th century.
The town hall of Louny had to be rebuilt in 1887 as the old Renaissance one burned down. You can climb up the tower if you want. I didn't as I had already been on top of the tower of the cathedral, that is less then 50 meters away.
The Town Hall is open from Monday - Thursday between 5.00 and 18.00 h as well as fridays between 5.00 and 17.00 h and Saturdays from 8.00 to 12.00 h.
The Museum of Town's History is located behind the cathedral. It's front is decorated by a Late-Gothic bay and in there the ground floor is still preserved in Gothic style. Aside from interesting historical exhibitions you find the tourist information in there. The two elderly ladies just know a few English words but are very helpful and have a dictionary where you can show them what you like to know.
Admission is 10 Ks (~0.30€) for adults and 5 Ks (~0.15€) for kids and students. Really a bargain!

Favorite thing: In the centre you find some electronic info points. Just press '#' and the number of the language you would like to hear. Then type the number of the building or location you are interested in and you see on the map little lamps blinking, showing you the way there and a speaker explains you the location and the way to get there. Very helpful!!
Favorite thing: In the 16th century the city experienced a large boom and therefore a lot of new houses had to be build. A lot of them were destroyed in a city fire but several citizens' houses of the Renaissance epoque are still left and can be admired.
Favorite thing: Louny and its vicinity is characterised by huge hops fields. No wonder why Louny is known as beer city. I just knew this city from the Louny Beer which is not only popular in Czech Republic but also in Germany.
