Golden Roof, Innsbruck

3.7
#2 of 67 in Sightseeing in Tirol
Architectural Building Historic Site
At Golden Roof, 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.

Where to stay in Innsbruck

The Alpine gem of Austria, Innsbruck offers a surprising amount of reasonably priced accommodations for its size. Look for hostels and hotels in the medieval center. Another option is to stay above the city on the Hungerburg Plateau, where you’ll find Alpine hotels with panoramic views from each room. If you're traveling on a budget, look for lodging in private homes throughout the city: rent a room or the entire house for a local stay.

  • Nice place and a loving shopping street in Innsbruck.... You have try delicious ice cream.... Pose for pictures... Pick a pizza from magic pizza.... You have lots of branded shops and street shopping.. a happening place where you can spend all day!! ☺️☺️
  • Not really worth a visit for that alone. But the street itself is quite charming. The golden roof does add class to an already nice part of the town. Also, Very good mix of ridiculously expensive shops and affordable ones. The restaurants are very reasonably priced.
  • The atmosphere is buzzing at night, all different nationalities all dining and chatting in unison....its absolutely enchanting....can't wait to come back again in winter
  • When we visited they were playing awsome music. Exhibition was also quite informative.
  • Nice building and well preserved. The other buildings are more or equally attractive.
