Old Town Hall Tower

The Old Town Hall Tower is one of the most striking buildings in Prague, built in 1338. Inside is a staircase. For a minimal fee, visitors can climb to the top to enjoy wonderful views over the Old Town Square and all of the Old Town.

In 1364 the Old Town Hall Tower was joined to a private house beside it, which in turn was knocked into other houses to create the Old Town Hall as we know it today. An extensive renovation in 1470 refurbished the Old Town Hall in the Gothic style. Today the Old Town Hall houses the main Tourist Information Centre in Prague.
