Our establishment's name and history

Its name "Stich`n" - which has lived on to this day - originates from its previous owner, Johann Michael Stich. He acquired a stake in this estate in 1752 by way of marriage. On February 11, 1752, he and his wife purchased the house from his father-in-law, Johannes Schloor. On May 27, 1780, the house is passed on to their son, Josef Stich. The Hößl family acquires the house in 1801, as Konrad Hößl purchases the house by way of deed on June 18, 1801 (by way of his marriage to Margaretha Stich).

The original former "Stichn" building was previously located on the Pechhofer Straße, adjacent to the so-called "Stichn-Bruck". It burned to the ground in 1841 - and was rebuilt in the same year. In 1841, the entire suburban area was modified. Along the road by the name of Neue Amberger Straße, an expansive roadside market was established (with straight rows of houses left and right). This is how the "Stich'n" tavern relocated to its current site.
