At The Golden Roof (Goldenes Dachl), 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 “building with a golden roof” (Goldenes Dachl) was built in the year 1500 by the Emperor Maximilian. Historically balcony was covered with gilded, copper tiles. The building is a tiny museum...

  • Good for taking pictures, the bars and restaurants are quite nice. If you are more into nature, take the cable cart up and have a hike.
  • Extremely beautiful place that has kept its authentic look, at least a century ago. It captivates with its appearance, architecture, a relaxed atmosphere that relaxes. Not only is the roof golden, everything around is "warm and golden". It needs to be seen and experienced. It can't be described ... A must visit...
