The Alte Oper is Frankfurt's old opera house, which dates back to 1880. Unfortunately it was almost destroyed by fire in 1944, and it took years to be restored, not reopening until 1981. (In the meantime, a new Opera House was built elsewhere)

The exterior and lobby were rebuilt based on the original Renaissance-style design, however the rest of the interior is modern, containing various concert halls and a congress centre. Statues of Mozart and Goethe can be seen on the façade, overlooking the square.

Address: Opernplatz 8, Frankfurt
