Everything in Innsbruck is small and this applies to The Golden Roof also. Easy to find and nice to watch. Unfortunately we could not visit the museums.

I must admit I was slightly disappointed with the appearance of the Golden Roof - I expected more shine and glamour! Having said that, it was very easy to find and definitely worth a picture or two!

We only observed from outside...... but it is certainly something to see. On the Sunday morning there was a group of musicians on the balcony... and a big crowd watching. Look above the roof as well, to the mountains behind - a stunning location not to be missed

Even my teens were engaged by the presentation which uses diagrams, descriptions and a short movie. After the movie you walk through a room that has historical pieces from the time period. It gave perspective to our tour of the... More

The reason we visited the Golden Roof was that it is an important landmark in Innsbruck. However, the visit to the museum frankly speaking aren't particular interesting although I am a history lover.

One can just imagine royalty watching a joust from their front row seat in the balcony of the Goldenes Dachl! It is amazing to know that this was concreted up for protection during the world war and came out unscathed. It is a beautiful structure and you can't miss it!

Something to admire whilst there. The crowds gathered taking pictures for keepsakes and strolled around visiting the shops for souvenirs or something to eat which was not in short supply. I did the same thing back in 2006

It's neat to look at, but is another one of those types of attractions that if you don't know the history, it's hard to be overly impressed. Be sure you read what it's about before you go.

Beautiful, well worth a trip to see, placed right in the centre, not difficult to find .Tower and Palace in the same area. For cheaper eats to save cash go onto the parallel road beside the main street where the locals shop. We bought supermarket sandwiches for a fraction of the price.
