Well, it is a nice golden roof in an otherwise typical period building. There are many other superb places in the centre of Innsbruck that you will enjoy more than a short glimpse this roof offers.

My visit occurred in December and I was lucky, that there was no snow. I could take some great pictures from the Golden Dachl, placed in the middle of the Weihnachtsmarkt. (x-mas market). As far as I know this is the main tourist attraction in Innsbruck (among lots of others, even)

The old centre of Innsbruck has some beautiful old buildings, with the Golden Roof as the centre-piece. Whilst the golden roof makes an impressive feature, it is easily surpassed by other attractions in Innsbruck such as the cathedral. Nice enough, but over-hyped.

Golden roof it is a large balcony roof. Very old style, located in main square of old city where ancient entrance road is. Also is just near bridge on Inn but also just near Imperial palace of Habsburgs. Nice "colour spot".

Well, the Golden Roof is a really interesting structure, you better check it out when you are in Innsbruck. Its very easy to find; just follow the main walking road with the gate on your back. Not very thrilling though.

The old centre of Innsbruck is really beautiful and a recommendation to visit. The highlight of the old centre is the golden roof. It is a beautiful special monument with a special history which you can read and get more detailed information below the roof. Good to take a picture like the many other tourists. Also nice to visit are... More

I think it's okay to look at but I certainly wouldn't travel far to see it. It isn't very golden to look at but I appreciate the history behind it

Visit the museum to really understand the golden roof. Otherwise, it may just seem a bit odd. If you do want to just see it, you can't miss it, it is in the middle of the old town.

This site is easy to see as it looks out over the quaint old-town square. It is pretty, and the history behind it is interesting, but it is not all that much to see. If you are in Innbruck for the history, it is probably a must-do. If you are there for the skiing, just check it out as you... More

If you travel to Innsbruck in the middle of the Austrian Alps, you must see the Golden Roof (German: Goldenes Dachl). I is located right in the center of the Old Town (Altstadt) section of Innsbruck and surrounded by many cafes and bars where you can have your Cappuccino or Aperitivo, depending on the time of the day and your...
