  • This is the case in architecture, when the soul sings. Let the eclecticism, even a complete mixture of pseudo-classics, baroque and rococo, even at first glance oversaturated with sculptures, but if you step a little further away and look at everything at once, the picture is composed in a beautiful, almost fabulous crystal air image, from which there is nothing to take away!

  • The Old Opera is a great and impressive building right in Frankfurt city centre. It is located at the end of the restaurant and bistro mile = Fressgass and has home a beautiful café with large outdoor area.

  • Beautiful square in the middle of the city. Amazing architecture and detail in the building. Lively ambience with a calm. Lots and lots of crowds. The fountain in the middle is an amazing calming thing. Could sit here for hours!
  • Highly recommended as a must-do for a short trip. Went to see a performance of Beethoven's music and it was utterly sublime. A beautiful building outside and in, with a wonderful crowd of mixed generations all with an appreciation of the musical talent on display. Incredibly talented performers and an efficient and helpful staff. Ticket very reasonably priced and despite not speaking the language it was perfectly simple to attend the performance, having booked online.
