Golden Roof, Innsbruck
(3.7/5 based on 1,500+ 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.

  • The Golden Roof (Goldenes Dachl) located in the old town area of the city Innsbruck, it's a most famous symbol of this city, look very nice with gold and unique. 
  • Always closed, bad times and bad indicated the days enabled. Only worth by outside to take a picture

  • The building is old but only draws attention by the color of the roof. When I was there (October) happened a traditional party of hunters. The stage was well in front of the Villa. How is situated in the Centre of the city, it becomes easy to go there.

  • One of the best locations in Innsbruck. There is so much to explore in the city of Innsbruck that it may be a little overwhelming at times. Everything looks amazing, it's all well organised, you simply cannot get lost. Every building has it own character and charms so you will find yourself stopping every minute to take a photo. If you are a keen architectural or landscape photographer you will love this place. Also for the relaxed traveler, there are dozens of bar, cafes and restaurants overlooking Innsbruck's amazing landmarks so you can sit back relax, have a cup of warm hot chocolate and enjoy the view. I hope you visit this amazing place you will not regards it!!!
  • Even if you don't have the Innsbruck card, stop in here. Fairly priced and has a lot of information on Archduke Maximillian. I there's an exhibition on the history of Jewish people in Innsbruck, as well.
  • Very nice historical building with a lot of other different styled buildings around. Relaxed shopping along the Maria-Theresien-Straße
  • This is a great place to visit plenty of different type of architecture nearly every building has a different style. Golden roof is an unusual building I did some close up photos. There are plenty of street artist doing there own style to make a living. There is also a lot of different shops around this area.
  • 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.
