Step into another age in the historic center of Innsbruck, where the city’s medieval settlements have survived until now. The pastel colored houses, which boast ornately decorated facades and archways, form a kind of time capsule that offers visitors the chance to be transported 800 years into the past. The Goldene Dachl gleams above the main square, giving you an idea of the kind of wealth that this little Alpine city harbored for centuries. Its 2,738 tiles sit above an even more opulent box built by Maximilian I who wanted a luxurious spot from which to watch tournaments. Today, the same street accommodates many busy shops and cafes.
