English translation:bedtime sweet
Explanation:
Some Austrian hotels are in the habit of putting a sweet on or by the bed, so as to ruin your teeth before you drop off. That is, if what is meant here is the same as "Betthupferl" which is the term I know. Naturally, other constructions, less innocent, can also be placed on it.
