Goldenes Dachl

Innsbruck, Austria

"We stopped in Innsbruck on our way back from Oktoberfest in Munich." --Marco

History: Maximilian ordered that all 2,600 copper shingles on the royal balcony should be
covered in gold as a "gift" to the people of Innsbruck. (Goldenes Dachl = Golden Roof.)

Thanks to Ricky, Massi, Laura, Carlo and Tyron for phooning and to Marco for the photo idea.
