Guided tours of the Alte Oper
Come with us to the back! We cordially invite you to get to know the Alte Oper on a guided tour and learn interesting facts about its architecture and history. The volunteer guides from the ranks of our support group, the Society of Friends of the Alte Oper, will be happy to show you around the building and the complex processes that are necessary to ensure that everything runs smoothly when the stars of classical music and entertainment take to the podium. In the process, they also provide a glimpse into those rooms that otherwise remain hidden from the public. Where does a conductor focus in the last minutes before a concert? What does the workplace of a stage manager look like? Where are the concert grand pianos stored?
The approximately 90-minute tours are open to the public on selected dates, but can also be booked individually as an exclusive group tour with a maximum of 20 people.
New dates from September will be announced on June 1, 2021.
• Tours are generally conducted in German. In the course of 2022, individual dates will also be offered in English.
• Due to the space available, we are unfortunately unable to offer wheelchair accessible tours.
• Should it happen that a planned tour cannot take place due to changes in the Alte Oper's event programme at short notice, the ticket price will be refunded.
• Group tours can only be booked by private persons, not by resellers.
• The guided tour is not recommended for children under the age of ten.
