    Lauf experienced its first heyday under the banner of the Bohemian lion. Based on the city survey, a diverse urban life developed: self-government and jurisdiction, crafts, markets and customs, church and school, social institutions. The urban character found its expression in the emblems of the seal, coat of arms and flag as well as in the various public buildings from the town hall, the shepherd's house, the shooting house to the "Fronveste", the city jail; not to forget the fortification with ditch, wall, towers and gates, which made running to a reasonably safe place.

    As a goods transhipment point, customs station, weekly and annual market, it received its typical character. Today, behind the sandstone and half-timbered facades, there are attractive courtyards with workshops and farm buildings from the late 17th and 18th centuries.
    Many traders were at the same time innkeepers who quartered travelers, wagons, teams, goods and animals and had the right to brew beer. For this reason, the market square is undermined with labyrinthine rock cellars that can be visited on a guided tour.
    The free-standing old town hall forms the center of the market square.

    The old town hall is very historic, a real gem! It has been rebuilt and renovated several times. There is currently a restaurant in there.
