Dasselbe wurde von verschiedenen historischen Persöulichkeiten bewohnt und diente u. a. dem Feldherrn Prinz Eugen von Savoyen, mehrmals als Absteigequartier, so 1711 vom 22 November bis 2 Dezember. Im Jahre 1809 besorgte die Küche dieses Gasthauses die Tafel Andreas Hofer’s und seines Stabes in der Hofburg.

German-English translation:

Archduke Sigismund of Tyrol had this house built in 1480 for the town leader Nickolaus Haidl, and had it graced with its portrait. Over time the building housed several well-known persons, including the commander Prince Eugene of Savoy. Several times it served as a barracks, for example from November 22 to December 2, 1711. In 1809 the kitchen of this inn got the table of Andreas Hofer and his staff from the Hofburg.
