The Triumphal Arch (German: Triumphpforte) is one of the best-known sights in the Austrian city of Innsbruck. It is located at the southern end of the present Maria-Theresien-Straße, once the southern road out of the city.
The "star" of the Old Town and of Innsbruck is the Golden Roof (in German Goldenes Dachl). The Golden Roof is basically a three-story balcony of the house of Archduke Frederick IV, built in the early 15th century as the residence of the Tyrolean sovereigns in the central square in the heart of the Old Town. In 1500, it was decorated with 2,657 tiles of gilded copper for Maximilian I, Holy Roman Emperor, as a royal lodge.
Innsbruck's market square is one of its three markets, where you can buy amazing gifts and souvenirs, taste Tyrolean delicacies and listen to Tyrolean folk music.
