It is nice if you want to take pictures at a fancy looking place. It looks great. We weren't able to go inside. There is a nice cafe/restaurant on the side, and nearby places that are fun as well.

The location was very nice with lots of caffe and high end shops in vicinity. The old opera building is an epitome of structural finesse and German skillfullness.

I found this building while exploring Frankfurt. Getting off at the U-Bahn station called Alte Oper, it is only a block away from the station. It is a large building with interesting architecture.

We attended a concert by the Vision String Quartet of Berlin while in Frankfurt in mid January. The Opera House is very nice and was a short walk from the Sofitel where we stayed. The concert included two performances of Classical music and one of Jazz/Popular. They delivered great renditions of the classics but you could really see they were... More

One of Frankfurt's historic landmarks. Well worth a look, if you are near the Western end of the main shopping axis.

Nice design. Then, if you turn left, you can visit the bankers neighborhood, with very nice and elegant buildings.

Didnt get to venture inside but after a brisk walk in the cold and snow, it was a welcome sight in the piazza.

I arrived at this nice location in my short tour. The outside view was really good, and the area around it was welcoming. I was inside for very short time, and I had to leave due to an event was about to start
