    MUSEUM WHICH WAS THE HOME OF KAISER MAXIMILIAN I
    We walked to The Golden Roof Museum on the pedestrian mall in Innsbruck. The museum building was the home of Kaiser Maximilian I in the 1400's and 1500's. He was the ruler of most of europe at one time. The exhibits are very interesting and informative.

    Interesting
    This golden roof is the symbol of the old town of Innsbruck. It’s not big but when the sun is shining it’s brilliant and very nice. With our Innsbruck card we could visit the museum and we saw this golden roof on the other side. To see the place and people below us was very impressive.

    The Golden Roof!
    It's gold and it's a roof - that's about it. You can't miss it as it's on a main square in the old town. The cafe on the square is a nice place to stop for a drink though. Interesting fire hydrant that attracted a lot of photographers!

    Golden Roof
    Visited this attraction while exploring the city of Innsbruck. It's a roof, covered in gold. A cool photo opportunity from the outside. We were able to go inside as part of the Innsbruck Card, but it's very small and not that interesting from our experience. I'd visit the roof for a photo, but skip the museum.

    Glitter that made this building to stand out
    The golden roof so popular in Innsbruck was a spectacular sight during the day with gold plated slate like pieces that adorn the roof creating an attractive glow. This decorative roof made the building to stand out from the rest making it a landmark. It is unique in some sense.

    Very beautiful old city
    We enjoyed a private tour of Old Town Innsbruck on our recent trip to Europe. We saw the golden roof plus many other sites there. We even got to go inside an old courtyard during our tour, to see how people lived and still live in the old city. Very interesting. Also places to shop nearby or have a glass of wine.

It is the center of the old town in Innsbruck. Many of the shops and restaurants are around it down the middle and side roads. It is not very big but is historically significant to Innsbruck.

It is a key attraction, nice for photos but other than that, there wasn't much impact that I gather from visiting this place.

A pretty historical building at the end of a lovely walking spot with the alps in the back ground. The golden roof has an interesting story. We did not go in. Enjoyed the restaurants with the fur blankets on the chairs since we visited in winter. There are covered walking areas around the stores as you walk towards the palace in case of bad weather. I also had no issues using my electric scooter for mobility on the cobble streets!

Nothing much to see really, but an interesting story behind it. The 600-year old golden roof doesn't even have much gold composition, but is made of fire-gilded copper tiles. Anyway, every visitor to Innsbruck seems obliged to visit and take a photo before moving on to other sights.
