Semper Opera House (Semperoper Erleben) Tours

Dresden's Semper Opera House, or Semperoper in German, was built between 1838 and 1841. The opera house is located along the Elbe River in the historic center of Dresden. It is Germany's most famous opera house and the home of the Saxon State Orchestra, one of the world's oldest and best-known orchestras, as well as the Saxon State Opera. The opera house closed during World War II in August 1944, and it was destroyed six months later during allied bombings. It was a long time before reconstruction began, but it was completed on February 13, 1985, exactly 40 years after the building was destroyed.

Semperoper Erleben, or Semper Opera Experience, offers guided tours of the opera house. During a tour, you will learn about the architecture in the opera house's richly adorned rooms. You will learn what makes such unique acoustics in artistically furnished viewing rooms. The multi-lingual guides will also teach you about the opera house’s history. There are special tours at night, tours themed for children, and tours that focus on different topics such as architecture.

Practical Info

The Semper Opera House is located at Theaterplatz 2. Tours cost 10 euros and are offered most days from 3 to 3:35 p.m., but check ahead since available days and times sometimes vary.
