Stroll along the shops and enjoy the old buildings. Stop for a lunch or a coffee with waffels (tradition).

There is little to see - look it up online ad you have seen it all. However, it is a nice part of a walk through historic Innsbruck and at the intersection of some nice old and narrow lanes and the main street. Don't miss it but don't expect to be blown away.

It is a roof with gold paint. Very sparkly in the sun. Lots of tourist cafes and shops surrounding it. Good for positioning yourself

We stayed in the centre of the old town and could see the Golden Roof upon leaving our hotel, I imagine it looks beautiful on a sunny day.

Would be nice if there was more information provided regarding the history of the building, but the location is a great place to start your day.

An interesting building front in Altstadt Innsbruck. There isn't a significant amount to do at the Golden Roof itself -- just look and take pictures. It is very scenic, as is the entire Main Street through old town Innsbruck. There are countless little shops, cafes, and restaurants.

A small museum in the centre of the Old Town with Austrian and Jewish history. There is a huge Torah on display. Amazing. Great place to visit on a rainy day which happened to me. Fascinating 'window with golden roof'. There is a great view of the main street from the window of this balcony. Beautiful wood carvings of Coat... More

The Golden Roof itself doesn't offer a whole lot of entertainment other than the museum, but this is the main town square and always has events going on in front of the Roof!
