High pressure remains stationary and we can thus look forward to another marvellous day! There will be plenty of sunshine with just harmless cumulus clouds.

Tendency

During the next few days it will stay warm, but with the air becoming quite sultry at times, occasional thunderstorms may occur, especially in the late afternoon and evening.

To get into the Museum Goldenes Dachl you have to call 581 111. A staff member will then come to the side entrance at Pfarrgasse and open the door to the lift which leads to the museum. An accessible, disabled friendly toilet is provided.

Amidst the charming Old Town you will find Innsbruck's greatest tourist attraction and certainly its most characteristic landmark: the Golden Roof – a three-story balcony on the central plaza in the heart of the Old Town. The late Gothic oriels are capped with 2,738 gold-plated copper tiles. It was constructed for Emperor Maximilian I to serve as a royal box where he could sit in luxury and enjoy tournaments in the square below. Completed at the dawn of the 16th century, the Golden Roof was built to celebrate Maximilian's second marriage to Bianca Maria Sforza of Milan (Maximilian was a ruler who expanded his territory through marriage, not conquest). Not wishing to alienate his allies gained by the first marriage to Maria of Burgundy he had an image of himself painted between the two women on the balcony. Inside there’s a museum (don’t miss out on the great view from the royal box) and the Golden Roof is also the permanent secretariat of the organisation Commission Internationale pour la Protection des Alpes.

After visiting the Golden Roof we will turn southwards to the mediaeval City Tower on the left side.
