Goldenes Dachl, Innsbruck, Austria

 

Goldenes Dachl

The Golden Roof is actually copper, and was built in the 1490’s to shade the imperial court’s balcony, which has a full view of the square below. The balcony is adorned with replicas of Moorish dancers performing for (of course) Maximilian I, who apparently got into a hot tub time machine to include both his first and second wives in the scene.
