It's a sight worth seeing and a nice place to start a tour around downtown Frankfurt. Attractions like Paulskirche within walking distance.

A place where on a weekend you can see people hosting road shows... Music and some of the cultural activities. It is well connected by Tram and close to the Main river. Just opposite the EuroStar building.

The building itself is nice and the prices for events are fairly reasonable. I saw an orchestra but I was very disappointed. It was not spectacular and tried too hard to be arty and unusual. It ended up being akin to the twilight zone. I...More

Located in Opernplatz close to the banking district, the Old Opera House is a rebuilt building with amazing architecture. It is hard to believe that it is modern. Definitely a photo stop when visiting the city.

This building was a bombed out shell until restoration efforts saved the exterior and created a modern world class concert venue on the interior. I was lucky enough to catch the philharmonic performance of several Tchaikovsky pieces, with balcony seats in the large hall. The...More

This rebuilt structure continues the glory and magnificence of the 1800s. It still offers an intimate setting for performances.
