Trip Planner: Europe / Austria / Austrian Alps / Tirol / Innsbruck / The Golden Roof (Goldenes Dachl)
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 Golden Roof (Goldenes Dachl) Reviews
Очень красивый балкон в ничем не примечательном доме. Отличное резное сооружение с действительно золотой крышей. Были вечером, включена неплохая подсветка. more »A very beautiful balcony in an unremarkable house. A great carved structure with a really golden roof. Were in the evening, turned on a good light.
Very small museum with some interesting paintings. Only takes an hour or so to complete. Worth a visit if time is limited more »
Innsbruck is quite special and interesting to visit. However in the last years tourism has gained more foothold resulting in the really special stores making place for the average tourist stores, which is quite a loss. As such Innsbruck and the Golden Roof are becoming more and more the average tourist city. The Golden Roof is fun to see but not really worth a visit on its own. Combine it with additional sight seeing and shopping.
Beautiful place in the middle of the old town of Innsbruck, very touristy area but a highlight when visiting the city. Try to go there in the evening or early in the morning, it is much less crowded and pictures will turn out great
