A decent attraction right in the centre of Innsbruck with a long and interesting history. It is what it is.

You can take pictures from the outside. It is right in the middle of Old Town Innsbruck. We had the Innsbruckcard so we went into the museum. The person at the desk was very nice and friendly. You receive earphones you can choose the language on, but as a whole, the museum was not very interesting. I guess, you need... More

Like any old building you might just walk by and admire the wonderful old architecture and Innsbruck abounds in beautiful architecture. You have to go inside to appreciate more about the history of the building and the man that built an empire. The displays inside are quite good and the narrative using the included audio system is quite informative. Go... More

I agree with many others saying is just another roof, but it really stands out. Yes, it is made of copper, who would think gold will survive 500 years untouched??? Nice to have some pics in front of it, and to see the small inside museum about Maximillian I, if you have the Innsbruck card.

An excellent exhibition showcasing some of the history of Innsbruck and why Maximillian 1 was so well loved and revered. There is a free self guided tour so you can walk at your own pace. If you have the time and you are trying to decide what to do, this should be on your list!!

Built in 1500, this little house its one of the symbols of Innsbruck. The "Golden Roof" as most of the tourist knows it, its just a small facade in the middle of the Old Town. The golden roof itself is not made of gold but from copper and was made by Emperor Maximilian to commemorate his wedding with Empress Maria... More

The roof isn't even gold! It's just made of gold coated copper. Not great. Okay if you are visiting it only once.

The Golden roof museum at Innsbruck is famous for its 2,657 copper tiles which look like Gold. Emperor Maximilian I (1459-1519) had ordered the construction of the splendid balcony before 1500. The museum has 6 rooms and they showcase an interesting picture of the times of Emperor Maximilian I and his rule and its economic and cultural importance for Europe... More

So it's not quite what you expect. We expected to walk inside a building with a gold roof but it is simply a small golden roof outside. So ticketed it off the list of things to do but probably wouldn't go out of my way to tell a fellow traveller to see it. If you have the time yes but... More

It can be a 1-2 min halt - Just to tick mark what many people would see. However, we went here more than once... Just to enjoy the little cafe', eateries, Strudel Cafe in the near vicinity. Nice to sit down and have a local desert with coffee amongst the hustle bustle of the tourists visiting this place.
