We went in the morning and walked in leisure. The building is so eye-catching that you may find from distance. It is amazing the design and construction could do in the old days. The buildings all around are so well maintained and kept with characters. It is a must when you are in this area.

A lovely sight in a lovely and lively street. Full of tourists as it is the main attraction in the city and there are excellent restaurants in the vicinity.

It is perfect for the people who loves to take pictures like me! It was very crowded but it has one of the best views and an interesting past in the history of Innsbruck. From here you can walk through the narrow streets with lots of shopping and little culinary places. If you are lucky and get nice weather, take... More

Not sure the back story to it, we probably should have read up on it. But it is neat to see, and that's about it!

Ok so it's something shiny in the sky on a sunny afternoon with the reflection of the sun. Other than being a unique landmark, the style does not at all fit in with the architecture of the area. We didn't go inside as we had spectacular weather and remained outdoors.

Somewhat underwhelming nevertheless a nice centerpiece of the pedestrian zone. Overall a very lovely town and well worth a visit. Linger in one of the cafés and watch the multitude stroll by.

Set at the end of a lovely thoroughfare the Golden Roof is well worth a visit. No fee, view from the street and able to take photos of this wonderful roof.

I'd suggest to see this famous landmark only if 'you're in the area' ... it looks great & is for sure a historical masterpiece ... it won't 'knock you out of your socks' though to be quite honest (it's, of course, a subjective opinon)

The roof itself is just that - a golden roof covering the sloped side and front of a building facing into a city square. It's free to pass by and have a look at, and usually there are quite a few crowds of people looking at it. Inside, there's also a museum. It's worthwhile finding out more about this place's... More
