Architecture in Vintage Art

Golden Roof (The Goldenes Dachl)
Innsbruck, Austria

It’s a landmark structure located in the Old Town (Altstadt) in Innsbruck and considered as the city's most famous symbol. Completed in 1500, the roof was decorated with 2,738 fire-gilded copper tiles for Emperor Maximilian I to mark his wedding to Bianca Maria Sforza. The Emperor and his wife used the balcony to observe festivals, tournaments, and other events that took place in the square below.
