This is a really cool piece of history especially in Austria and Tirol. Its not very big or something that you can really explore or go into, but its part of history and looks quite exquisite. I recommend at least stopping by while you visit the very nice and ornate old town in Innsbruck!

The museum is packed full of information about Innsbruck, We spent a couple of hours looking at the exhibitions but you could spend longer if you want to take in more. It was good value for money and the audio guides were good. We enjoyed it.

This is located in one of the little busy streets of Innsbruck. Try checking it out when the sun is shining for the beauty of this golden roof. It's also nice to get a drink in one of the cafe's opposite and take in the surroundings.

It's the landmark of Innsbruck. You can't miss it, it's right inside of the old town. Go early in the morning to avoid the tour groups and the crowd. You can clearly see the golden roof in the morning. In the late afternoon, the light doesn't go well and the roof doesn't seem "golden" so go in the morning.

It was a dull overcast day when we walked to see the Golden roof so it failed to shine and was rather disappointing. There are no story boards in English or any description so it failed to impress me at all. I am sure it would be much better if the sun was shining down!
