Very historical, and right in the centre of the old town. Do visit the museum behind for more information.

A historical building that's kept as it was, in the middle of other modified buildings. Located in the middle of the city and free to access.

This is right in the main square and is worth visiting to see the roof and to get a photo or two. Behind the building is a view of the alps which is quite lovely.

This roof is unique in that is gold, but the back drop of the Alps is a one of a kind sight. Could not get enough of the view.

We stayed right near the centre and The Golden Roof was only a 5 minute walk away beautiful to see the old structure worth a little pit stop.

Visited the Golden roof during our short stopover in Innsbruck. Easy to find and quite pleasant to stroll around especially in the evenings with lesser crowd. There were also Christmas market around and souvenir shops which still opens after 6pm. Not to be missed!

The Golden roof was somewhat underwhelming for me. A small area covered with tiles glazed by copper, or some other metal but not gold. The surrounding area is a shopping area free of traffic.
