Goldenes Dachl und neuer Hof

In diesem Geb?ude befand sich von 1420 bis ca. 1460 die Residenz der Tiroler Landesf?rsten Friedrich IV. und Sigmund des M?nzreichen.

Der mit 2657 feuervergoldeten Kupferschindeln gedeckte Prunkerker, das Wahrzeichen der Stadt, wurde als Auftragswerk unter Kaiser Maximilian I. von Niclas T?ring d.?. errichtet und laut Inschrift im Jahre 1500 fertiggestellt. Die Fresken stammen von Maximilians Hofmaler J?rg K?lderer.

Die Erkerreliefs zeigen Portr?ts Maximilians und seiner beiden Gemahlinnen, die von Moriskent?nzern umgeben werden. Wappen, verdeckte Hinweise und Symbole ergeben ein komplexes Gesamtkunstwerk, das das Selbstverst?ndnis Mazimilians widerspiegelt. Das Schriftband hinter den T?nzern auf den Reliefs konnte nicht entziffert werden.

German-English translation:

From 1420 to 1460 this building was the residence of the Tirolean sovereigns, Frederick IV and Sigmund the Wealthy.

The roof of the magnificent oriel, covered with 2,657 fire-gilded copper tiles, serves as a symbol of the city. Nicholas T?ring the Elder was commissioned by Emperor Maximilian I to construct and complete the building in 1500, according to the inscription. The frescoes are by the Emperor Maximilian's court painter, J?rg K?lderer.

The bay reliefs show portraits of Maximilian and his two consorts, who are surrounded by Moorish dancers. The crest, along with hidden clues and symbols together result in a complex work of art that reflects Maximilian's self-understanding. The band with writing, behind the dancers on the reliefs, could not be deciphered.
