Better outside than in

Lovely to see - but don't go in unless you are really keen on history - or have an Innsbruck card when it's worth a free look. Not that much in there.

Amazing to hear the story behind the Goldenes Dachl. You must get inside the Museum too. Free to look at from the Old Town Square. It is in a quaint street with pretty shops , cafés and restaurants. Very vibrant and we felt safe to walk around hunting for good souvenirs.

If you are passing through Innsbruck, it's nice to see the Golden Roof, but it's not worth a trip to Innsbruck just to see it. If the sun isn't shining on it, it's nothing special--it looks much nicer when the sun is shining on it. There are lots of shops and cafes in the area, and it is a very... More

The golden roof is the place were tourists meet in Innsbruck. So, you can't miss it. But even more interesting as the (small) golden roof are the wall paintings and the architecture of the historic buildings around it.

This is one of the main attractions of Innsbruck. The area its in is part of the old town which is very beautiful. This attraction is a must see when you visit Innsbruck.

The golden roof wasn't anything special. Then again I haven't really read into it and I know nothing about it. The good thing was that there was always a party going on underneath The Golden Roof. Restraunts and vendors lined the street in front of it. It was very crowded but really fun.

Well, it's just a building with a guilded tile roof, but it gives you an idea how it must have felt like to be standing on the balcony surrounded by the incredibly useless yet impressive opulence. "Yawn, look at the filthy commons".

This is the photo every tourist wants to take in Innsbruck. We utilised our Innsbruck Card and went to the museum for free where you get to see the roof from inside. The rest of the museum was fine and despite the audio guide we quickly skipped through the displays and hearing endless stories about Maximilian I.
