While the Golden Roof is....well only really a picture opportunity no visit to Innsbruck would be complete without seeing it in all its glory.

See this wonderful piece of architecture in the old part of the city. We were in Innsbruck for the Christmas Markets in early December and it was wonderful to see it right there in the midst. Then at night we go back and a brass band was playing in it with all the Markets and Christmas decorations in full swing.....ABSOLUTELY... More

I read about this landmark in the book and did not imagine what this "roof" looks like. I spent to find it! Locals advised me where this roof is located. I was disappointed, when found it)))

I totally love this wee street, the golden roof is the landmark of course that draws you down, when the sun sets, the golden roof takes a great picture, the streets are so clean, a marble effect so very pretty.

Probably the least easily misunderstood thing to see in Innsbruck. It's a little roof, made of gold coolured tiles. One thirty second stare is probably 25 seconds too much to take it all in.

It's very hard to miss this one while visiting Innsbruck, as it is on the central square of the town. We visited around Christmas time, and carolers on the balcony played Christmas songs while the Golden Roof was lightened up, making for a very beautiful show! Definitely worth looking up to it while you walk down the road!
