Lovely guide who was very knowledged and shared interesting facts and little anecdotes. Make sure to book the Semperoper tour outside of the theatre holidays if you want to see entire stage design as it was closed to visitors in August, while a guest theatre company was using the opera house during the holidays.

Beautiful building, lovingly and faithfully rebuilt after the fire. During the autumn holidays, the number of visitors was extreme, which is why all tours started later (10-15 minutes). Organization a bit chaotic, but very hard-working and friendly. Several guided tours took place at the same time, so that it was relatively noisy in the opera hall. At the same time, preparations were being made on the stage for the subsequent ballet performance, which was also associated with noise, but was also interesting. The guest guide was enthusiastic about her own cause, so that this was also transferred to the spectators. Lots of insightful information about the construction itself and the material used.

Our tour guide was very personable and wanted to give us as much information as possible. Very easy to get into the tour. You stand by the main entrance and wait for an employee to scan your booking and let you inside. Note - you have to pay 3 euro to take any photos at all inside the Opera... I personally think this is a rip-off and would have probably just pulled up images on my phone after the tour if I wanted them. I only ended up taking a few photos because the 45 minute guided tour flew by.
