Dieses von innen her an die mittelalterliche Stadtmauer gebaute Wohnhaus diente vermutlich schon im 14. Jh., nachweisbar aber von 1469 bis 1768 als Innsbrucks erstes Schulhaus. Der Durchgang wurde um 1672 als Zugang zum ersten Innsbrucker Universitätsgebäude (Herrengasse 1-3) angelegt. Seit 1939 fungiert die alt Schule als Wohnsitz des Innsbrucker Bischofs.

German-English translation:

This residence was built up against the medieval city walls and probably dates from the 14th Century; from 1469 to 1768, however, its documented use was as Innsbruck's first schoolhouse. The passageway was built about 1672, giving access to the first Innsbruck University building (Herrengasse 1-3). Since 1939, the old school has served as the residence of the Bishop of Innsbruck.
