History, 1976 - Hotel Opéra

The Opéra and its history

The history of the house is closely associated with the family Lutz and Berger and the Eisbach river, which mostly flows underground through Munich's old town and Lehel. The Eisbach might have initially had a more practical purpose for the house, but these days it secretly adds to the relaxed atmosphere of the Mediterranean courtyard oasis of our hotel. Since 1968 many hours of work have transformed the ordinary apartment building of the Munich suburbs into a wonderful gem. Ernestine Lutz, together with her son Alexander and partner Rudolf Berger gradually transformed the house bit by bit, under the benevolent eyes of their guests, into a little jewel.

Entering the Opéra which, like Venice, is built on water,
you can feel the stress of the city fall from your shoulders.
In its beautiful Renaissance courtyard, one can hear
the soft rustling of the Eisbach river
and the chirping of the birds while enjoying breakfast.
Happy festivities, such as weddings,birthdays, christenings and other
occasions are perfectly suited to these surroundings.  


Many obstacles had to be overcome, until finally in 1976 the house came into the possession of Mrs. Lutz and Mr. Berger . With much dedication and enthusiasm, extensive renovations were undertaken. The house was remodeled from head to toe, until the small city palace shone with a new luster. Each room has its own individual touch - every detail has been chosen with a lot of love and effort. So it is not surprising that almost every piece in the house tells its own story.
