It is a little golden colour roof of a balcony in the inner city of Innsbruck. If we had not already read about it before our arrival we would have easily missed it. It is actually more of a landmark with some history attached to it than some amazing architecture. The roof, made of 2738 tiny copper tiles, shines only... More

The Golden Roof is an Innsbruck icon. It is in the centre of the old city which makes it very easy to get to. The gold roof tiles glitter in the sun - not so much when it's cloudy and raining.

Nice fun fact about the golden roof - the tile are actually made of brass :-) but other than that, a lovely landmark in the middle of the city, where once kaiser could stand and look at his subjects!

Must see from the outside but the museum is very dense so good if you want that but may not be interesting for all visitors. There is a children's room with activities though.

The area around the Golden Roof is great in winter. It is surrounded by christmas markets with lots of Gluhwein. I thought i had passed my stay without seeing the golden roof. 6 months later while browsing online i found out that my phone background screen was actually a picture i had taken of the golden roof without realising it!...

If you visit Innsbruck, you definitely have to have seen the golden roof. Just because it's the most popular site here and it represents an important part of Austria's history. Furthermore, it's in the middle of the oldest part of the town which is literally one of the most beautiful place I've ever seen! However, keep in mind that it's... More

You can easily find this golden roof in the inner city of Innsbruck. It's quite beautiful, but also quite small.

The golden roof is on the balcony that overlooks the square below. The king can sit and view the scene below. It has nice collection of various artifacts.
