As a frequent traveler throughout Europe, I've had the opportunity to visit many beautiful opera houses. However, this one stands out among the best. With its stunning exterior, set in a large square with a beautiful fountain, it is truly a sight to behold. The building is adorned with elegant black lamp posts and intricate figurines, culminating in a stunning flying horse at the very top. Additionally, the balcony with lovely pillars and arches halfway up adds to the overall grandeur of the structure. If you're in the area, this is definitely a sight that should not be missed.

I have travelled extensively around Europe and seen many Opera Houses and from it's exterior. this one ranks right up there with the best of them. Set in a large square with a beautiful fountain to it's front, it has steps leading up to it's doors. It has elegant black lamp posts to it's front with wonderful figurines all over the building and a flying horse at the top. Halfway up there is a balcony with lovely pillars and arches too. Not to be missed.

Lovely venue - very historic. The best time to visit is on the evening when the Oper and the surrounding plaza are lighted.

The building is not original as it was destroyed during WWI , but it was rebuilt according to the previous one. A taste of neoclassicism in Frankfurt just one step from the Freßgasse, the area with so many restaurants and food events.
