Association of Friends of OpernTurm
Let us do something good

Our intention is to influence society positively through sustainable, social and responsible action. Founded in December 2009 by tenants and patrons, the non-profit Association of Friends of OpernTurm has since launched various projects and initiatives relating to the tower.


Verein der Freunde des OpernTurms e.V. pursues only and directly charitable and non-profit objectives.

The non-profit objective includes selfless support of the arts, culture, and social projects for the common good. This includes, for example, art exhibitions, lectures, readings, and cooperative projects with local social groups and initiatives.

The charitable objective includes supporting persons in need. Our intention is to launch our activities together with our members and in response to their suggestions.

“We believe modern entrepreneurial activity hinges on sustainable and non-profit action. This way, we can give something back to society.”

Main activities

Bringing people together, creating spaces for encounters, and giving society something beneficial – all this is close to our hearts. With its innumerable initiatives, the Association repeatedly succeeds in kindling people’s enthusiasm for culture, providing a platform for dialogue, giving young people insights into the world of work, and supporting less privileged people.

Supporting cultural and charitable initiatives

The Association supports non-profit institutions and efforts in the form of regular donations, and particularly with events to promote culture and support families. These include, among others, concerts at Alte Oper, the Stoffel Open Air Festival in Günthersburgpark, and the Opernspiele games on Opernplatz, which offer children and young people plenty of fun and games in the heart of the city during the summer vacation.


In the framework of the moderated “Klartext” event, OpernTurm invites Association members and selected guests to a stimulating exchange of opinions on current and controversial topics at irregular intervals. Outstanding persons from the worlds of business, politics, society and culture as well as actors from all manner of interest groups in Frankfurt first debate among themselves and then enter into a moderated discussion with the audience.


The goal of FreuNacht, an initiative the Association has been supporting since 2013, is to bring joy to children from families in need and to show their parents that they can rely on a strong community. In cooperation with Frankfurter Tafel, the children fill in Christmas wish cards, some of which are hung from the Christmas tree in the OpernTurm foyer, and socially committed staff at OpernTurm fulfil these wishes and place gifts or donations under the tree. Shortly before Christmas, the Fire Department distributes the gifts to the children and parents.

Support for people in distress

In coordination with non-profit institutions and advisory offices, the Association supports people in need in difficult situations in life. Through dialogue, sustainable solutions are devised and assistance provided accordingly. These efforts are often able to bring about favourable change in the everyday situation of individuals in distress.


The annual “OpernTurmgespräche” familiarize final-year grammar school students in Frankfurt with the diverse worlds of work in OpernTurm. Representatives of various companies offer insights into their careers and their everyday working lives – in the course of leisurely conversations with the young people.
