Maximilian I was widely considered too extravagant for his own good, and the Goldernes Dachl is an example. 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, but this stretched the royal household's finances so much that the emperor was forced to take out a loan! The balcony, was used by the royal family to watch theatrical productions and other forms of court entertainment. Now it is a part of the Museum Golden Roof which you can view as you take the museum tour or from outside.
