What travelers say:

The Frankfurt Old Opera is at the end of the luxury pedestrian street and is also an important attraction in Frankfurt. It used to be an opera house in history, and now it is a concert hall. The old opera house was completed in 1880. It was destroyed during World War II and was once known as the most beautiful ruin in Germany. After the war, the exterior was faithfully restored, and the interior was changed to a concert hall. The fountain at the entrance is easy to take pictures.

Additional Information


The Alte Oper is a classic opera house that can be found in downtown Frankfurt that dates back to Kaiser Wilhelm in the 1880s. This landmark building has seating that will fit 2,500 for performances, but is worth a visit even if you are not there to watch a show. In addition to operas, the Alte Oper contains several other facilities for small gatherings or other functions, making it a great gathering place for your groups. The facade, after impressive renovations following destruction during World War II, offers a fantastic photo opportunity and a wonderful place to marvel at European architectural grace.
