3.7/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Right in the city centre, in a pedestrian-only square is the building of the Golden roof. There's no way to go to Innsbruck and not take a picture of the location.

  • Hanging out in Innsbruck we can see very beautiful buildings, all impressive, but none like the Golden Roof. You can have doubt if it really is golden, if you're not sure, but is golden and very beautiful.

  • The main attraction of Innsbruck city is this roof of a royal balcony made up of golden tiles. On a bright sunny day, you can already see this glistening roof from the Anna's column. Be ready to make your way through a sea of tourists to get up close to this attraction. The building houses a museum but it is not worth the time or money.
  • it is a balkong and it is many people there to see it so it is trångt skämtengelskan var meningen
  • Even under severe torture he would not recant or reveal the names of other Anabaptists. Jakob Hutter was sentenced to death by fire and died on 25 February 1536 at the stake in Innsbruck in front of the Golden Roof.
  • Nice place to come all year round with lots of bars and cafe's nearby. The golden roof itself is not so special though
