Golden Roof

Innsbruck, Austria
4.6 / 56
House-residence of the Tyrolean kings, built in the 15th century. It got such a poetic name thanks to the gold-colored tiles that cover the roof of the large external balcony on the front façade. The roof tiles have survived to this day; for more than five centuries, the coating has undergone only minor reconstructions. Today, the residence houses a museum, where personal belongings of emperors, court costumes, furniture and household items are exhibited.
Address:Herzog-Friedrich-Straße 15, Innsbruck

One of the popular attractions in the old town of Innsbruck. Its an old, historical building structure, the facade. The old town in Innsbruck is a very nice and beautiful place to walk around.

Nice building with golden roof. Near to it, there is a very old hotel in the bank of river Inn. The English word "inn" for small hotel must have come from this hotel.

I enjoyed the Innsbruck city centre, very beautiful with the mountains behind! The Golden Roof is interesting to see, but that is about it :) we only stopped by, so we may have not gotten the most out of this attraction.

The Golden roof really does stand out from the other buildings around it. Even when you walk farther away, you will still be able to admire it. It was quite late in the summer evening so we didn't get to see it shine in the sun. We didn't .. Read more »

Nice view from outside. We didn't go inside the museum as we had seen the reviews suggesting it's better to see from outside. We took some photos standing in the front.

Just another place to visit in Innsbruck. Nothing particularly special. Rather nice accent as you don't see golden roofs on many houses.
Petar Matić
Extremely beautiful place that has kept its authentic look, at least a century ago. It captivates with its appearance, architecture, a relaxed atmosphere that relaxes. Not only is the roof golden, everything around is "warm and golden". It .. Read more »

Very well maintained museum and artifacts. But bear in mind that if you are in Innsbruck just for its nature, ski, outdoor activities, you might wanna just skip this as it might bore you much. It really depends on what you like.
Daniel Lee
A good place to buy stuffs from that famous crystal brand. After that, you should walk along this river and enjoy the beauty and elegance in this city
Giulio Marchesi
One of the most famous tourist attractions of Innsbruck. Nice to see, when you walk in the main street.
JeanClaude VanDarnItAll
Very beautiful but there wasn't a lot of information about the roof at the spot itself. In the museums around it you learn some interesting Facts about this beautiful monument. The roof is a real eyecatcher, no matter the weather.

Good for taking pictures, the bars and restaurants are quite nice. If you are more into nature, take the cable cart up and have a hike.

Loved it. Even if the area is small you get an historic feeling (if you know what I mean) a feeling of the past with some local or native music and clothes that some people are wearing. The small restaurants are a nice plus to this area.
Old and vibrant. The overall area has a charm. Not a must but you will stimble upon it when you are in Innsbruck.
