we came with Globus on a tour going to Salzburg. well it is very small and nice, it is overlooking the square. I will have to say, like others, there would have been other places I would rather have seen!! and after all it is just a roof.

It isn't overly impressive, but it is kind of a cool, certainly different, architecture in an ancient square. I did not go in the attached museum. Walking from the train station to the main attractions of old town, you can't miss this golden bay window.

No big deal. Many other places are more elaborate. Sorry I have to make this 100 characters for Tripadvisor to accept. Made it with 49 letters extra.

It's just a tiny golden roof which has been smartly covered up as one of d main attractions...maybe to give business to d souvenir shops around...just a picture spot...which could probably satisfy you...dat "u covered it"... Can avoid it n explore the scenic beauty of Austria otherwise!!

It's in a great area of food and shops! I wouldn't go out of my way to go see it but if you want to do some shopping then I suggest you stop by and see the golden roof.

OK so its worthy of a picture or two but the crush of tourists specifically tour bus groups makes this area very congested.

This was a very interesting museum. The exhibits were of a high quality and were well presented. The audio guide was excellent and probably doubled the value gained from the visit.

We, and loads of other tourists, stopped and looked and took photographs of the stunning 'golden' roof. As with many places of beauty in the town, the area around it is busy and some of the shops and cafes take away the uniqueness of the building.

I think this is the best place to start viewing the Old Town in Innsbruck. Catch a cup of coffee at any of the local restaurants around the Golden Roof as a good way to view it as well as watch all the town goers go by. It is located on a great street in Innsbruck and really helps define... More
