The building – tower and podium
The Art of Excellence

With its powerful elegance, the 170-metre-high OpernTurm rises up on Frankfurt’s Opernplatz. The OpernTurm, consisting of the tower with its clean lines and the rounded podium opposite Alte Oper, melds aesthetics with high technical standards and a contemporary building and usage concept. At OpernTurm, the best-known international companies work in offices that are the ultimate in quality.

OpernTurm is the shape that decisively forms the Frankfurt skyline and the heart of the city.

Making Ahab

The Masterpiece


Ahab is the tragic hero in Herman Melville’s whale-hunting novel Moby Dick – and the title of the largest painting that the renowned New York painter Julian Schnabel ever made. Fourteen metres high and 13.4 metres wide, the artwork was made specially for OpernTurm on used sail canvas. In the eyes of the artist, Ahab gives the building something human and brings it closer to nature, to the sea.

The Collection

Art is an integral part of OpernTurm

In the 17-metre-high lobby, alongside the large-format “Ahab”, there are also two works by former Städel student Manfred Peckl on display. “Meteorite” and “Black Hole” are made from thousands of star charts and focus on the topic of the Big Bang: Peckl takes the world apart in this manner, re-arranges it, and thus creates a new order of material and space.
