It's a historical architecture in the old town. Not much to view inside. The place is best enjoyed wile sitting in the cafes next to this spot. Many tourists come and go taking countless selfies. If you are lucky than you may find artists who dress like statues and perform for gratitude.

But every year she probably said, "but what have you done for me lately?" Of course you have to see this while in Innsbruck.

When the sun hits the roof you KNOW it. It is locatedin the Tyrolean mountains. Walk through the medieval lanes to see Emperor Maximilian's treasured roof.

The roof itself is... In good condition? Yes. Historical monument? Yes. Well maintained? Yes. But what makes it popular is the area around it which is always busy. Check.

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.
