The old town was surrounded by the castle walls originally, but the walls are not left at all today.
This pillar was erected in the 18th century as a memory to the day when Bavarians were banished from Tyrol.
The Golden Roof is a landmark structure located in the Old Town of Innsbruck. It is considered the city’s most famous symbol. Completed in 1500, the roof was decorated with 2,738 gilded copper tiles for Emperor Maximilian I to mark his wedding to Bianca Maria Sforza from House of Savoy.
The Emperor and his wife used the balcony to observe festivals, tournaments, and other events that took place in the square below.
The old town is not so large. After the Golden Roof, I visited the Royal Palace and the Cathedral.
