This Golden Roof is where the center of the tourist district in town is located, there was an Easter market in the square below it when I was in town. This area is interesting as there are many shops and alot is going on, however the Golden Roof was beautiful but otherwise not that interesting.

WOW!!! The nature called while walking in the old town Innsbruck. I didn't see any "WC" sign anywhere but Saw the museum. Thought "they would certainly let me use the toilet". A red haired older woman gladly showed me out the door somewhere else. I told her it was quite urgent. Then she did let me use the WC for... More

A historic building in the old town, but much smaller than I thought. Definitely worth a look on a tour of the old town though, and good for some pictures.

Beautiful building, one of many in the town square. We wandered up from the Triumphpforte to here, a beautiful stroll in a straight line past most of the main sights.

The golden roof is right in the heart of the old city so you don't need to go anywhere to enjoy it. It's a nice picture spot and plenty to do in the center so really you can't miss it- it's not necessary to make it a destination of its own.

Innsbruck old town is a lovely place to spend a couple of hours wandering around, admiring the architecture and soaking up the atmosphere. It can be busy with tourists but that's to be expected. The Golden Roof is one of many highlights, easy to get a photograph of and plenty of lovely cafes to drop into and enjoy more of... More

It's just a small balcony with a gold roof, but historically significant. We were on a guided tour and probably would have never noticed it unless it was pointed out to us. Once you learn the history about the gold roof, you can then appreciate it's significance

There is not a lot to say about this that cannot be looked up online, photographing can be a bit of a challenge depending on the; time, weather, and tourist traffic. If you looking for a reference photo, then just about any time will work, lots of foot traffic during the nice days so mind your personal space. If you're... More
