Tips

  • Mike 🇪🇺

    The Alte Oper was badly damaged in World War II. The City Council wanted to leave the remains (in some cases there were also plans to blow up the remains) In the fifties, a citizens' initiative was founded to rebuild the Old Opera House. The reopening took place in the presence of the former Federal President Carstensen on 28.08.1981.
    A visit, however, is only offered as a guided tour from 12 people with prior registration (mailto: soeren.appuhn@t-online.de).

  • The construction costs of the Frankfurt Opera were then planned at 2 million marks. By 1880, it had cost a whopping 20 million marks.
    In 1944 it was largely destroyed in a bombing raid and in 1951 they built a new opera house. In 1965 they wanted to demolish the ruin completely, but thanks to civil protest and the largest fundraiser in Germany until then, it was rebuilt faithfully to 1981.

  • Newly opened concert hall in 1981 (after the original one was destroyed in the war) with quite good acoustics. The current program is available at alteoper.deUp until the mid-1990s, the area was one of the main meeting points for the Frankfurt drug scene, but now you can take a little round after the concert.

  • The Alte Oper in Frankfurt am Main is an absolute MUST.
    After almost total destruction in World War II, it was beautifully rebuilt. Today there are concerts of a wide variety of music styles.

  • The Alte Oper in Frankfurt was built between 1873 and 1880. It was destroyed in an air raid in 1944. The old opera remained a ruin until it was rebuilt in 1976. In 1981 the reconstruction was completed.
    A beautiful forecourt with cafés and a fountain create a very special feeling.

  • The Alte Oper on Opernplatz in Frankfurt am Main is a concert and event venue. It was built from 1873 to 1880 as the opera house of the municipal theater and destroyed in an air raid in 1944. While the Frankfurt Opera received a new venue on Theaterplatz in 1951, the opera house remained in ruins for a long time.
