For the first time IceCube detected a high-energy astrophysical neutrino
flux above the background of atmospheric neutrinos. However, the origin
of these neutrinos is still unknown. All of the galactic and
extragalactic neutrino source candidates are also sources of high-energy
gamma rays. I will discuss by means of example gamma-ray studies how
gamma-ray observations can be used to constrain possible neutrino source
classes. Finally I will present IceCube's target of opportunity program,
which triggers multi-wavelength observations based on interesting
neutrino events. This program aims for an increased sensitivity to the
detection of transient sources and identification of the neutrino
sources through their multi-wavelength counterpart.
