“Lovely Building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

You can include the Alte Oper on a walking tour of Frankfurt.

Summer time is great weather and the fountains will be on.

Perfect place for photo ops as you explore the city!

I was on Friday (6.6.),the summer came in Frankfurt,
and the fountain was working,so after I made a stroll
I was sitting there and relaxing.

“Top flight experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

Didn't realize I had not submitted earlier review. This review is for the restaurant only. I've eaten here twice for formal business dinners. Both experiences had excellent food and superior service. The wine list is 5 star. The waiter was attentive without being over present. Food courses were served timely but not rushed, though the restaurant was near capacity both times. The building itself is gorgeous, as is the decor. Certainly a 'must' for an upscale Frankfurt dining experience.

“"A pearl in tne city"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

The Alter Oper is a must see attraction to watch one of their events. The building in itself has most of the interior built as a modern multipurpose complex with concert halls and a congress center.
