At The Golden Roof (Goldenes Dachl), imagine how the Austrian emperor and his wife sat on the porch and watched tournaments on the square below. The symbol of the city, it overlooks the main street of Altstadt. The name of the place stems from the 2,738 fire-gilded copper tiles covering the roof. Emperor Maximilian I commissioned the three-story balcony to celebrate his marriage to Bianca Maria Sforza. Learn about Austrian history from the reliefs and murals depicting scenes of the emperor's life. Eight sculpted reliefs covering the second-floor balustrade illustrate how aristocrats amused themselves. Look for a flanking relief depicting the acrobatic and grotesque dancing of Moorish origin.

  • The roof is spectacular and photogenic from variety of angles. It is considered to be the symbol of the city. See it up close and from the street perspective. Interesting but not amazing history...

  • A must see in Innsbruck. The city loves this iconic building with its gold roof from the 1500s by emperor maximillian I. A lot of history.

  • Beautiful old town, all places you need to visit in Innsbruck old town are around this area. Right at the end you get to see this golden roof balcony that is distinctively different from the rest of the building. There are many other colorful buildings around with full of history and culture. So many food options around including McD.
  • Very quaint and easy to stroll small old town. Right at the end you get to see this golden roof balcony that is distinctive different from the rest of the building. Filled with rich history and apparently is converted to a museum now
