" Standing majestically over the St. Sebald church, it is considered one of the most important mansions in northern Bavaria from the Gothic period. Built in the years around 1270, it has had a long history. Its name derives from the Schürstab family that owned the house from 1328 to 1478." (Submitted on August 25, 2012.)

The marker is visible here between the two doors on the south face of the building. Besides the two doors, evidence of the two houses being joined together to form the mansion can be seen by counting the number of rows of windows to the right and left of the two doors.
