Recently reopened after an extensive refurbishment it is a stunning hall. Would have loved to see a performance there. Printed English guide could have been a little more detailed but still good. Multi media intro had English subtitles. Really a WOW

It is hard to describe the beauty and craftsmanship of the Opera House. It is a must see! Unfortunately, the tour is only in German but there is a very informative Brochure to read in English.

Non pretentious on the outside but the interior and details are amazing. Entrance is 8 EUR and we didn’t had troubles getting tickets there on a Sunday. The last entrance on a Sunday is at 15:15 when you will get to see the iron curtains...More

I've visited twice and just love it. So gorgeous inside. I only wish they had English tours. Or at least audio guides or discount the price for English visitors. You're basically paying 8€ to just sit there with no information.

Wnderful, tiny opera theatre - only sorry we couldn't see a performance, which must be quite an experience.

This is a vcomplete and fully functional 18th century opera house, lavishly decorated and opulent. Tours are only in German, but you are seated during the tour. Well worth the visit even if, like us, you don’t speak German.

Absolutely stunning. A bit pricey with € 8 ticket for the "multimedia show" which is a short trick film and an Opera sample. Try to go on weekdays, since the stage is closed on weekends and cannot be opened. open and fully restored to the...More
