The Golden Roof or Goldenes Dachl (left - and also visible in the picture above) is a landmark in Innsbruck. Built in 1500 it was decorated with 2657 fire-gilded copper tiles for Maximilian I, Holy Roman Emperor. The reliefs on the balcony show coats of arms, symbols and other figures in his life. The original reliefs are located in the Tiroler Landesmuseum. The emperor and others used the balcony to watch events in the square below.
