The prettiest building of the city, and a nice fountain plaza in front of it. Restaurants line one side, a lesser park the other, and a busy street the third.

For decades after the war this was just a pile of rubble; now it is a gorgeous building both inside and out. Worth stopping to take a look.

The Old Opera House dominates a large pedestrian plaza called (appropriately) Opernplatz. The neoclassical facade features massive arches, columns surmounted by a freize, and a pediment topped by a winged horse. A large fountain in front leads the eye from the green trees lining Taunusanlage...More

The Opera house dates back to the late nineteenth century. It was badly damaged during the second world war and has been reconstructed in its original form. In front of the magnificent building is an equally grand fountain. Definitely worth a visit.

Hi! If the concert is inside the opera, then I would definitely recommend wearing something chic. Not necessarily a tie, but a shirt and blazer will do! Hope I could help. Have fun at the concert!
