We enjoyed the musical performances from the balconies around the local square whilst enjoying the gluhwein and Christmas markets.

Fun sight seeing with beautiful mountain backdrop. Loved hearing the band perform from the balcony! Great courtyard area too.

Well you can't miss the Goldenes Dachl, even under heavy snowfall as we experienced it during our visit. One of the most characteristic spots of Innsbruck located in the heart of the pedestrianised center and dating to the ear of the emperor Maximilian. It houses a precious collection of the city's history and characteristic emblem.

We didnt actually go in so maybe I'm doing it a disservice. The golden roof seems to be pretty famous but is actually pretty small. Looks nice for a quick pic. We climbed the tower opposite for nice views of the roof and across the city.

Pretty boring compared with many other options.We were told wonderful things about this building and maybe our hopes were higher. Thank god we bought the 2 days Innsbruck card, and it was free of charge to get in.We have to say that the staff was very friendly ,for a change in Austria.

The Golden Roof is not only appealing in its appearance but the classical site has hidden treasures. While staying in Innsbruck during the Christmas period I was mesmerised with many musical appearances. First the trumpets then flutes and a whole orchestra. What a pure delight to have been there to enjoy these musicians at their finest.

As the title suggests, it is not worth making a special journey just to see this small but pretty roof- yes, it's worth a five minute photo stop if you are passing, but that's it.

It is worth taking a quick look at the roof if you are walking through Innsbruck, but not very impressive.

A good shopping street leads to the Golden Roof - take a couple of pics, tick this off your to-do list and then go to the impressive Swarofski shop for more shopping.

Maybe it is because I was in Florence 2 days later but I was not blown away by the Golden roof. As you can see from the photos it is a roof over a balcony, not a roof of an entire building. By all means go see it if you are in the old part of town anyway but not... More
