Long Description:
Located at Kohlmarkt 11, this building, Großes Michaelerhaus, was erected near St. Michael's Church in Vienna.
This website (visit link) translated by Google to English informs us:

"The end of the carbon market is dominated by St Michael : Michaeleroplatz , St. Michael , St. Michael's Church and the Small and Large Michaelerhaus . The Order of Barnabites had the house built about 1724 , the facade comes from the second Half of the 18th Century .

From its courtyard , the St. Michael's Church offers a completely different view than from St. Michael's Square. From the courtyard you have a look at the oldest parts of the church. There you can also see today is very romantic -looking attachments that as carriage houses , served in part to part as dwellings .

This property was in its long history, several great personalities . On two have memorial plaques go to the house : Joseph Haydn and Pietro Metastasio .
Haydn was released after his voice broke from the choir of St. Stephen, lived in a row of musical odd jobs and lived at this time a very mean garret in Michaelerhaus . From this chamber is get nothing because of a subsequent increase in the building. At the same time, the librettist Pietro Metastasio lived in this house."

The building is apparently used as an art gallery at this time.
