Opera House

Visiting Zurich would not be whole without a trip to the Opera House or Opernhaus. Undoubtedly, one of the world's best places for operas, this lovely white and grey stone building with busts of Mozart, Weber, and Wagner boasts 270 performances each season. Built in 1891, the musical theatre with an auditorium seating capacity of 1200 has showcased performances by some of the world's best composers and singers like Richard Strauss and Jonas Kaufmann. In spite of full performances from September until July, advanced booking of tickets is advised for a chance to watch any event at the Opera House.

  • Sit outside on the terrace of Belcanto; eat mouthwatering antipasti or a choice of tasty cakes while enjoying the lovely view of Lake Zurich and breathing in its fresh and clean air.
  • Take a backstage tour of the Opera House to learn about its amazing history, skilled artists, and dedicated staff.
  • Watch the dancers from Zurich Ballet in action, trained by none other than the world-renowned Heinz Spoerli and comprising 50 highly skilled dancers from 24 countries.

A taxi ride in Zurich is rather costly compared to a bus, train, or tram ride. The Opera House is a few minutes walk away from the Stadelhofen Station. Just take tram number 11 or 15, served by VBZ and stop at Stadelhofenplatz. If a train is preferable, then, take any of the SBB lines, S3, S5, S6, or any other and get off at Stadelhofen Station. To enjoy free bus, tram, train, boat, and cable car rides, get a 24-hour or 72-hour ZurichCARD. Visitors can also enjoy discounts on items at specific shops and performances with it.
