Opernplatz on Ice

Temporary ice rink in front of the Alte Oper

In 2008, activ consult real estate (acre) GmbH, with the support of well-known sponsors, initiated the project to create a temporary ice rink in front of the Alte Oper, among the city’s skyscrapers. Tens of thousands of people used the oval rink surrounding the Lucae fountain, skating against the picturesque backdrop of Frankfurt’s Alte Oper. The rink was roughly 700 square meters in size, and facilities also included a skate rental service, a cloakroom, refreshment stands and OpernTurm Chalet with a bar and fireplace.
