Informacní Stredisko is in the heart of the Old Town at Masarykovo nám. 103, 379 01 Trebon (tel. 384-721-169; fax 384-721-356; www.trebon-mesto.cz). The staff members are excellent and speak several languages, notably German. They provide maps, guidebooks, and information on tours and lodging. Open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.
There are only three ways to penetrate Trebon's Old Town walls, short of pole vaulting. To the east is Hradecká brána (Castle Gate); on the southern edge of town lies Svinenská brána; and to the west is Budejovická brána. Once you're inside any of these gates, the six or so streets that comprise the Old Town can be easily navigated.
