Description
Maximilian I was widely considered too extravagant for his own good, and the Goldernes Dachl is an example. Maximilian ordered that all 2,600 copper shingles on the royal balcony should be covered in ... Read more
gold as a, "gift" to the people of Innsbruck, but this stretched the royal household's finances so much that the emperor was forced to take out a loan! The balcony, was used by the royal family to watch theatrical productions and other forms of court entertainment.

The Goldenes Dachl (Golden Roof) is a landmark structure located in the Old Town of Innsbruck, Austria. It is the city's most popular symbol. The roof was decorated with 2,738 fire-gilded copper tiles for Emperor Maximilian I to mark his wedding to Bianca Maria. The Emperor and his wife used the balcony to observe festivals, tournaments, and other events that took place in the square below.

My honeymoon. Been there over 15 times since 1999. Always room 10 at Pension Paula. Best beer while looking over Golden Dahl.

So many memories of the walking mall that leads to the Goldenes Dachl.

When I was young, I'd sit at a sidewalk cafe with my Grandfather, watching all the tourists shuffle about. Each year the landscape of faces didn't seem to change much. And neither did the fare, he with his glasses of white wine and me with my chocolate sundaes.

Lots of good times. Can't wait to return.

Impossibile non imbattersi nel Tettuccio d'oro (Goldenes Dachl) passeggiando per il centro storico di Innsbruck: se anche non alzate lo sguardo verso l'alto e siete distratti, lo riconoscerete comunque dalla quantità di turisti che si fanno selfie ai suoi piedi! Il tettuccio è la copertura della loggia cinquecentesca voluta dall'Imperatore Massimiliano I, e le sue 2.657 tegole dorate (sì, non sono TUTTE d'oro: l'anima è di rame) risplendono sotto il sole del Tirolo da allora. L'edificio all'interno ospita un museo che spiega bene la genesi e la storia del simbolo indiscusso di Innsbruck.
