Maybe because I don't know the history behind the golden roof I did not find it appealing.
For me it was just a small window with a roof cover in a golden lining.
To the left there is a more attractive and beautiful building.
Very pretty, great view if you climb the bell tower just facing it. Has infomation plaque all around Innsbruck about the history of places in both German and English which is great for non German speaking people
I came to Innsbruck during Christmas so I got to experience the Christmas market and the crowds. It was fun and different. During the evening when I was there (a few days before Christmas) we were serenaded by a brass quartet from the Golden Roof....More

The Golden Roof is just next to the Helbling Haus and is made of copper that in a sunny day relfetcs the sunlight to give a glowing appearance. It used to be the viewing platform for the Emperror to view parades etc.

The experience was made even more enjoyable by having a warm and delish Currywurst from a hotdog stand, right underneath this famous landmark
The atmosphere was also very...More

Hi there - I have been researching all of these forums but can't find exactly what we hope to do and in the winter at that.

I think you are trying to fit in too much especially in just 1 day in Vienna and Salzburg can be done as a day trip from Bad Ischl. You can walk most of the SOM sights. I,'d cut Innsbruck and spend an extra day in both Vienna and Bad Ischl/Salzburg area.
