Long Description:

The Langer’s House were originally two late-Gothic houses which were later joined and rebuilt in the Renaissance style. From this reason has Langer's house two numbers - 138 and 139.

A corner oriel was added at that time. While the front and rear wings of the house are from around 1530–1540, the yard arcade access balcony was added a little later. Sgraffiti with motifs from the Old Testament, which distinguish the house from surrounding buildings, date back to 1579.

According to tradition, house N°. 139 is one of the oldest in the town. The widow of Jáchym of Hradec, Anna of Rožmberk, was among the owners - she moved here after her husband’s death in 1565. In 1586, both houses were joined by a rich Hradec burgher, Cech of Kozmácov. An exhibition and sales gallery is located in building N°. 138 and concerts and chamber theatre performances are held here. An internet café is also located in the house.
