A roof in gold... I guess to some it's really nice. To me it was not impressive. If in town take a walk by and a quick pic

That's it. A gold colored roof. Not that big. Area around it is nice, if a somewhat over commercialized. So, you will see it, because it's where everything else is,but it's not really an attraction in itself.

There is history here, so look it up for yourself and then walk by and check it out. It is beautiful and very ornate. It's right in the middle of everything that's going on in Innsbruck.

I was a little underwhelmed by this attraction when I first visited Innsbruck, but had possibly expected a larger building with a greater presence. However the structure and roof itself are a beautiful sight, and do maintain a presence at the one end of the Old Town, so it's still worth looking out for it when in Innsbruck, which is... More

Nice to look at and there is a little museum underneath that was like 2 euros for students, cant go wrong in my opinion. Also the museum lets you go behind the balcony and photobomb all the tourists pictures below.

This did not strike me as very interesting in any way, but I loved the surrounding area, which is a beautiful square with the alps as a dramatic backdrop. There is a a lovely urban park and botanical garden about two blocks away. In addition, the square is a tourist area, but has lots of nice places to eat.

Not much to see, but it makes you realize what goes into building something like this and so many years ago. Innsbruck is very proud of this attraction.

Beatiful place and just mandatory in Innsbruck(but be aware with the thousands of tourists stopping in your front to take selfies). The coffes and restaurante around were nice, but TOO expensive (for me, at least).
