Photo: Old Opera House Alte Oper Frankfurt Hessen Germany

The Old Opera House in Frankfurt, also known as the Alte Oper Frankfurt is lit up at dusk with its fountain in front in downtown Frankfurt, Hessen, Germany. This historical building is very central in the town and is well worth a visit.

The Old Opera House, or Alte Oper Frankfurt lights up at dusk when the sun goes down. The building is clearly lit with a glorious fountain in front, helping to mark this building's presence as an important Frankfurt landmark.

It was in the late 1800s that an opera house was first constructed on this site, in a time when going to the opera was not only considered very fashionable, but also afforded the upper classes the chance to catch up with each other, discuss the latest gossip.

... In the end the outside was built to look exactly like the original.

About 300 concerts and events a year are held in this building, and although going to the opera may not afford the same social status as it once did, it is still quite a magical experience as anyone who has been to one knows.
