Inscription. Um während der Hof- und Landtage in der Residenzstadt eine eigene Wohnstätte zu besitzen, hat Heinrich v. Kneringen, Landkomtur des Deutschen Ordens “an der Etsch und im Gebirge” mit Sitz in Bozen dieses Haus erworben.

Die Erker wurden 1532 von Gregor Türing mit den prächtigen Wappen Heinrichs v. Kneringen, des damaligen Inhabers des Hoch- und Deutschmeisteramtes sowie der Komturei zu Schlanders und Lengmoos, geschmückt.

Schon 1539 hat der Orden das Haus wieder verkauft. Im Zuge der Restaurierung im Jahre 2001 wurden die ursprünglichen Fresken wieder freigelegt.

German-English translation:

In order to have a home while the Court- and State Councils were in session, Heinrich von Kneringen, the State Commander of the Teutonic Order of "On the Adige and the Mountains", with headquarters in Bolzano, bought this house.

The bay window was decorated in 1532 by Gregor Türing with the magnificent heraldry of Henrich von Kneringen, who at that time was the head of the High German Magisterium, as well as the Commander of Schlanders and Lengmoos.

In 1539 the house was sold back to the Teutonic Order. During the 2001 restoration, the original frescoes were again uncovered.
