History & Present
The early Baroque town palace was built by Count Maximilian Lawrence in 1666-74 on the site of two medieval burgher houses on the Upper Square. The artistically valuable façade from the second half of the 17th century is marked by a tall order of Corinthian pilasters ending with an entablature. The centre consists of a columned portal with a balcony, above which are placed two stone coats of arms of the Houses of Starhemberg and Scherfenberg.
At the turn of 1631 and 1632, Albrecht von Wallenstein dwelt in this palace. It is said that superstitious Wallenstein had an astrological observatory built on the palace roof and the Italian astrologer Seni tried to read his destiny from the stars.
In 1723, Emperor Charles VI stayed with his daughter Maria Theresa here on their way to coronation in Prague and on the way back.
Originally, the Althanský Palác was owned by the Starhemberg family. Around 1712, when the house was taken by Znojmo Marshall Michal Ehrenreich, Earl of Althan, the palace became an official building. Even in the interwar period it served as the residence of the District Government and long after World War II it continued to serve as District Authority building.
