As indicated on the marker, a sign with a Brewer's Star (and stork) is visible projecting outward from the building. The Brewer's Star, appearing quite similar to a Star of David, indicates a facility with self-brewed beer served on the premises, and can be found in some parts of Southern Germany. The Luitpoldstrasse 5/7 marker is visible just above the car; the Stadturm (City Tower) is visible on the left.
