If you blink you might miss it... Look up and you won't. It's interesting and represents a lot of history. There's always something going on near by. Vendors, music and street performers. Worth the walk.

The golden roof conjures up ideas of golden shimmering rooftops glistening in the distance. But see the image? See the little bit of gold? Yes, that is it. It is kind of a balcony with a lovely golden top. So... not quite a roof. Definitely gold. There is a pretty sparse museum inside, which you can skip, but a cool... More

Don't get disappointed when you see it, it is not as big as one would expect, but it is still really nice to see and learn about its history. Went while the Christmas markets were on, so that gives it a special feel.but any time of the year is good to go!

The sun was on the Golden Roof at 12.30pm, which is a good time to see it shining brightly, and to take a photo. The Medieval figures on the building are lively, and have some undeciphered golden language behind them. There are other ancient buildings all around, but this is the most picturesque one, and is featured on Austrian stamps... More

Beautiful buildings to view in the historic Old Town. Tourist shops all around the area watch the VERY HIGH PRICES!! There for the tourist yet they display notices "NO PHOTOS" outside the shops. Good eating cafe's & Ice Cream Parlors. Nice Old Coffee/Tea Room in the Main Street opposite the PINK BUILDING. Enjoy!!

Although all you can really do is stand in the square and look up at this lovely building it is really very lovely. We went a Christmas and listened to a brass band playing carols - very magical! Worth a visit and photo!

If you want to see a Golden Roof then you had better pop to Innsbruck. It is not huge or anything but you know, it's quite nice and the tourists love it. I actually walked past it before I realised it was there but then I never look up!! Interesting story about how there was a wall and additional roof... More

This is a small gold roof , and if inside you can't see it. We expected something more. Don't go in just look at it from outside as this is a exciting as it gets.

If you are spending an evening in Innsbruck, you cannot miss this place. While roaming around in the area itself is an evening very well spent.
