During the times of Maximillian I, the Golden Roof was considered the ultimate vantage point and rightly so, because the three storied balcony was from where the Maximillian enjoyed the view of the Alps as well as looked down upon the hustle bustle of the town.
Today, the Golden Roof is a major tourist attraction and an important landmark of Innsbruck. The roof has 2675 fire-gilt copper tiles to commemorate the marriage of Maximillian I and Bianca Maria Sforza of Milan. A museum was added much later (1996) to display the life and accomplishments of the ruler who is known to bridge the gap between the Middle Ages and the Northern Renaissance.

The single one thing you should see in Innsbruck! A show off of wealth of old emperors surrounded by lovely buildings and the Alps. What else is there to want. Have a beer, have a stroll, enjoy the atmosphere. I'd suggest you have a kinder walk across the river, along it and over at the next bridge to really indulge into the city. Have fun
It’s said that the scroll found on the relief of the famous Golden Roof in Innsbruck’s old town bears these words. However, the writing still hasn’t been deciphered so this is mere speculation – one of the many mysteries that revolve around Innsbruck’s sparkling golden landmark.The Golden Roof was a symbol for the old centre of Europe and a reflection of inconsistencies in times of great change. Sumptuously decorated with 2,657 fire-gilded copper tiles, all still original, it forms the roof of an alcove balcony that the great Emperor Maximilian I had added to the existing “Neuhof” building around 1500.
Iconic landmark located in the busy and narrow streets of Innsbruck. Nice build and maintained golden roof will be a good Photoshop. But getting proper frame is very difficult as the location is crowded with tourists. Lot of street shopping and local shops are available for shopping. Just couple of minutes walk will take You to scenic Inns river. Don't miss to observe the Goldener Adler restaurant which is running from the year 1390...
A very nice muaeum. Very polite and professional staff at the ticket office. Thanks !
An iconic symbol of this city. The view and the square in which we can find it is so well organized and the museum in it is incredibly well organized, full of stories than summarize the story of the city and the region itself. A very interesting spot and museum that should be a must visit.
