On 8 December 1414 opponents of church reformer John Hus succeeded in imprisoning him in the dungeon of the Dominican monastery, which is now the Steigenberger Hotel.


Jan Hus (or John Huss, 1369 - 1415) was a Czech priest, philosopher and one of the first church reformers. Hus attacked moral failings among the clergy and promoted some of the teachings of John Wycliffe (1331 - 1384), an English reformer who had been burned at the stake in 1384. Hus was excommunicated for his views in 1410 and burned at the stake as a heretic in Konstanz on 6 July 1415.
