Stadtrichter Zeller-Haus
Dieses Haus war um 1485 bis 1543 im Besitz der Innsbrucker Bürgerfamilie Zeller. Walter Zeller d.Ä. liess, als er 1495 Stadtrichter war, im Laubengewölbe das bemerkenswerte Quaternionen-oder Reichsadlerfresko anbringen, kombiniert mit den Wappen der “Gesalbten Könige: von Frankreich, England, Sizilien und Schottland. Von Walter Zeller d.J, (gest. 1543) stammt der zum Teil beschädigte Erkerschmuck mit einem seltenen Haussegen.


German-English translation:
From around 1485 to 1543 this house was in the possession of the Zeller Family, citizens of Innsbruck. Walter Zeller the Elder, during the time of his office as magistrate in 1495, had the remarkable fresco of quaternions or imperial eagle installed, combined with the arms of the "Anointed Kings" of France, England, Scotland and Sicily. The partially damaged bay window decoration comes inscribed with a rare house blessing that originates from the time of Walter Zeller the Younger (died 1543).

 
Erected by Stadt Innsbruck (City of Innsbruck).

Looking north up Herzog Friedrichstrasse, one can barely make out the Zeller House, roughly the fourth building up the street on the right side. Also visible further back are the Stadtturm (City Tower) on the right side at the end of the street, and the Goldene Dachl (Golden Roof), where the street ends.
