The Golden Roof, also known as the Goldenes Dachl in German is one of the most interesting tourist attractions in Innsbruck. Constructed by Archduke Friedrich IV during the early 15th century to mark his marriage to Bianca Maria Sforza, the Golden Roof was intended to be a residence for the Tirolean sovereigns. Constructed using 2,657 copper tiles, the Golden Roof is adorned with fine figures and the coats of arms of Maximilian I, the Holy Roman Emperor. Located in the Old Town of Innsbruck, the Golden Town with its three storey balcony was the royal seating area of Maximilan I who would enjoy the views and tournaments taking place on the grounds below. In present times the Golden Roof is used as a venue for the International Alpine Convention. Apart from that the Golden Roof is also home to the Maximilanium Museum and the Innsbruck City of Archives.
