Translated to English:

In 1580 this prestigious stone structure was built as the seat of the episcopal administrative office Office of Gerolzhofen under Prince-Bishop Julius Echter. In addition to the offices on the 2nd floor there were also private rooms and a small chapel, which inhabited by the Bishop during his visits to the city. In the 20th century it was used as District Office, and is now the seat of the township administrative office.
