  • This is the case in architecture, when the soul sings. Let the eclecticism, even a complete mixture of pseudo-classics, baroque and rococo, even at first glance oversaturated with sculptures, but if you step a little further away and look at everything at once, the picture is composed in a beautiful, almost fabulous crystal air image, from which there is nothing to take away! Then you come up and greedily devour the look of the details, then again go away and enjoy! The old Frankfurt opera is not so old and old. Built in 1880, the building was bombed to the ground during the war. Gran...

  • The Old Opera is a great and impressive building right in Frankfurt city centre. It is located at the end of the restaurant and bistro mile = Fressgass and has home a beautiful café with large outdoor area. Unfortunately, the forecourt is often the stage for political rallies, so you're coercive witnesses to these vocal events.

  • The Alte Oper is located in a beautiful square with a fountain in the heart of the city. We didn't have opportunity to go inside, but the building is fantastic, mostly at night.  more »

  • Beautiful square in the middle of the city. Amazing architecture and detail in the building. Lively ambience with a calm. Lots and lots of crowds. The fountain in the middle is an amazing calming thing. Could sit here for hours!
  • Highly recommended as a must-do for a short trip. Went to see a performance of Beethoven's music and it was utterly sublime. A beautiful building outside and in, with a wonderful crowd of mixed generations all with an appreciation of the musical talent on display. Incredibly talented performers and an efficient and helpful staff. Ticket very reasonably priced and despite not speaking the language it was perfectly simple to attend the performance, having booked online.
  • It's a very cool square with a big fountain in front of the building. The place get really nice in the spring because the trees all around bloom and make pink flowers.
  • My precioussss. He sure to see it after dark. I dare you go walk past it without taking photos. Book a brunch way in advance and enjoy the amazing inside and the views. You're welcome
  • One of a kind. The building was basically destroyed during the WWII and rebuilt afterwards. The outside looks old, but the interior is very modern, with great acoustics, foyers and a good restaurant. A must go for any music lover. Recommended
