This is only a building with roof coloured golden. Has some good drawings and idols on balcony. This is historical building with good architectural work. We have not entered to see museum. You can visit it if time permits.

The building itself is a nice piece of architecture, located in the old part of Innsbruck. Roof tiles are coloured with gold, that's it. They say that one of the roof tiles is made of pure gold; I don't know whether this is true, although it seems hard to believe. You can't miss the building, because hundreds of tourists are... More

What a great sight to see. And a great museum with audio guide with all the information you have to know about the golden roof. I would recommend you to take the tour as a history is important, it's not just a shiny roof.

One of the most known landmarks in Innsbruck, but honestly it is absolutely nothing special. As it is located in the city center, you will probably pass through it anyway. Take a picture and move forward to the Hofburg.

The golden roof is just a small balcony with a very normal decoration. It is located in a good looking square in the old town centre. It may deserve nothing more than a quick look or just a photo.

This is one of the least appealing attractions in Innsbruck. There are lots of stairs to climb inside, and the museum doesn't have much of interest beside old black and white photos of the Nazi occupation in Austria. The man at the ticket desk on 4/19/16 was so absorbed by his cell phone, that he barely knew I was (alone)... More

It's just a golden roof which everyone says you have got to see when you go to Innsbruck, but my husband and I went there, not knowing the significance of it. Well, it's just something different! Quite a distance from the train station though, so you would have to walk a bit!

Not much to see or do here. The golden roof is something you'll want to see in Innsbruck but it won't take more than 5 minutes of your trip.

It looked a bit odd to see a golden roof in the center of the city, where all others are build in a different architecture style. But i enjoyed taking pictures of it since it is very well known with locals, but unfortunately i didn't had the time to hear the history of it.
