“Just take a photo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The golden roof looks pretty from the outside but the museum is awful and nothing to see inside .. the only good side is that the entry is included in the innsbruck catd

“Golden?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Evenings is the best time to be at this lovely, charming and a lively square in Innsbruck. The square comes alive with young crowed from the local university gathering for fun, or a drink. Lots of cafe' serving Pizza, and Tirol food, to have with a glass of Beer. The most interesting part is the "Jugller" who entertains the crowd with his tricks, and not forgetting nice Frankfrutters with hot and spicey musterd sauce for your pallet. Golden roof, try guessing, if it is of Gold or..........!
In short a must place to be, when ever you are in Innsbruck.

“You must go in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Thousands of people take photos of this every day but if you pay to go inside you get a good introduction on the history of the balcony. You even get to lean over a barrier into the balcony - to see the lovely vaulting which cannot be seen from below. It is well worth it!

“Golden, but on a sunny day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The roof is actually a dull shade of yellow, but looks otherwise if you are lucky to visit it when the sun shines on it. Which is very rare, as this little building is surrounded by other bigger buildings.
The museum was closed when we visited so I can't say if it is worth going inside. But it is easy to imagine royalty up there looking down at the little square :-)
There are combo tickets for the tower and the roof at 7 euros if not using an Innsbruck card.
