Loved it here. We sat outside although it was very hot! The choice was good and the food amazing. Huge portions as always when in Germany! Love the butter portions, little rolls of wrapped butter with salt.

The opera house is a really pretty building, but not much more than that. If you are nearby it is worth having a look at, otherwise I wouldn't go out of your way to go and see it.

The outside of the Opera House is beautiful. There is also a nice fountain outside the front. I really enjoyed the quick walk from the subway station to see this attraction.

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.

Hi John I see others have answered. I thought I saw some publicity about it while I was in Frankfurt. Sounds like it will be a wonderful few days. Have fun and safe travels.

Loraine, which concert are you going to? At least there is a "Abendkasse" which opens 1 hour before each concert where you can purchase last minute tickets. Should be possible to deposit already paid tickets there as well... More

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!
