Emperor Maximillian stood on this balcony and gave this to the people of Tyrol...awesome...EZ to view and a great visit.
My husband had been in Innsbuck several years ago and we wandered the streets looking for this building....while I had no idea what we were searching for, he knew it from a distance and recognised it immediately. The golden tiles are very distinctive and it is very memorable to both of us now as a landmark building of old Innsbruck.
Nice to visit if you are in Innsbruck. Better things to be seen in this city tho. I would deffo recommend everyone near by to visit Innsbruck, because of its breathtaking landscapes and views.
I was expecting a bit more. But thats the thing with expectations. Innsbruck has a beautiful city centre and the golden roof is one of many attractions. So the city is well worth a visit...
The Golden Roof is synonymous with Innsbruck: its iconic tourist attraction. Set inside Old Town, the 2,657 copper tiles gleam in the sun, a perfect photo op for the many tourists who flock to the pedestrian area to eat, shop, linger and stare at the place where Emperor Maximilian I sat to watch the street scenes on the square below....

Well worth visiting located in the center of old town Innsbruck. While we were there a very formal wedding was taking place which made our visit that much more interesting.

Built by Maximillian for his new bride to show he wasn't poor. We have caught a local concert and dance under it. The surroundings are also interesting. several B&B's, a conditerei with excellent baked goods, a good wine store, a Swarovski store that is a crystalline wonderland. You really don't need a guide, but the streets do get confusing. Park... More
Make sure if you do not go with a tour that you get a local city information booklet. If you do not know the history behind the Golden Roof you will just walk pass it without even notice or see it and keep wonder what all the fuss is about. Interesting and well worth a visit!
The Golden Roof in Innsbruck is worth watching, its right in the heart of the old city. The old city is usually very crowded, but one blick at the roof, and you know you have seen something you will always remember.
We toured old town of Innsbruck with our guide, and the Gold Roof was a beautiful building right in the center. Enjoyed hearing the history of the area and seeing this landmark.
