Almost the most famous attraction in Innsbruck! Famous much more than it actually looks, haha.
Majestic snow mountains dominate your view wherever you go in Innsbruck. Of course, they sometimes get out of your sight as you swoop into the narrow, sheltered streets of this medieval city. However, once you see the famous Golden Roof, the quiet figure of the hills reappears and you're immediately born with an uncontrollable urge to climb the mountain and roam the day.
I heard about Innsbruck a long time ago, but I didn't have that high expectation before I went. But the last impression left is very good. Similarly, I really didn't know this golden roof before I went. Of course, I learned that it was almost one of Innsbruck's landmarks. If it’s not because it’s in the center, maybe it’s missed
The two-story canopy is 16 meters wide, and the roof alone is 3.7 meters high. The golden roof is made of 2738 gold-plated copper tiles. This is where the name of the golden roof comes from!
The edges of the cornices are decorated with carved patterns of animal motifs, and the surface of the pillars is surrounded by reliefs: among them are the statues of Emperor Maximilian I and the queen. The lower part of the front is engraved with the coat of arms of Austria and Hungary, the double-headed eagle and the king's eagle, the coat of arms of Burgund and Milan, and the coat of arms of Steiermark and Tyrol on the side.
The mural depicts two guards carrying the flag of the Empire and Tyrol on their shoulders. The authentic work of this work is in the Tyrolean Museum.
Head to the Austrian mountain town-Innsbruck. Located on the Inn River between the mountains in western Austria, the name means "Bridge over the Inn" is the capital of Tyrol. It is located in the main traffic road of the Alps, it is a famous ski resort in Europe and a paradise for ski lovers; in addition, the golden roof of the medieval old town is famous all over the world----
