Description of the Building:
One-storey building with a neo-classical facade from 1871. It has a gable roof parallel with the street, covered by tiles. The rear facade is former town walls on the ground floor. The first floor was extended with a corridor.

Architectural and Historical Development:
The building was created in the late Gothic period by building onto the town walls. After 1568 the house was deepened. The present appearance is a result of a reconstruction in 1871, when the facade was redone.

History of the House Residents:
The first known owner of the house was Hans Jocher Prökl. He was replaced by a butcher, Michal Tanzl, in 1568. In the first half of the 1580`s a weaver, Walter Frölich, lived there. From 1584 until 1621 the house belonged to the Paumbhauer family. After that the house was occupied by Kašpar Winkler until the 1650`s. During the time frame of 1662 - 1700 a belt maker, Michal Weiss, resided in the house. We don\'t know much about the owners in the 18th and 19th centuries. The house was occupied for some time by the mother of the painter Egon Schiele, Marie Schiele, born Soukupová, (1861 - 1935).

Present Use :
The building is not used at present.
