The Golden Roof is the landmark of Innsbruck and is situated directly in the beautiful old town.
The roof of the late Gothic ceremonial oriel is equipped with 2657 firegoldened copper shingles. From 1420 to circa 1460, this magnificent building was the residence of the Tyrolean Duke Friedrich IV and of Sigmund dem Münzreichen. From Emperor Maximilian I got Niclas Türing d. Ä. the instruction to build this work of art. According to the inscription, it was completed in 1500.
The frescos are from Jörg Kölderer, who was the personal painter of Maximilian. Portraits of the emperor with his two wive surrounded by Morisco dancers you can see on the oriel relief. Maximilian's self-understanding is a complex work of art from coat of arms, hidden signs and symbols reflected. However, the paper tape behind the dancers on the reliefs are not yet deciphered.
