Text:
“Beim festen Trunk aus diesem Humpen vergiss der Zeche Tilgung nicht.
Verhasst ist jedem Wirt das Pumpen. Zahlst du macht er ein froh’ Gesicht.”

(After taking a hefty drink from this stein don’t forget to pay the tab.
Every innkeeper hates borrowing. If you pay he’ll make a happy face.)

Landsknechte were feudal serfs used for military purposes by their masters. These “soldiers” were often traded between landowners and were, in a sense, the equivalent of modern mercenaries, with the important difference that they were not free to choose their employer.
