Saw Nabucco here, just fab, great to see such a big chorus and the orchestra so melodic. I try to take advantage of trips to places like this to see such performances. Excellent value, €30 with an excellent seat and sur-titles in English and German...More

We were in Berlin for a weekend and decided to take the maximum out of the opera, so we visited 2 performances. Very different but both were excellent. Price/quality ratio great compare to London, Wien or La Scala. We will be back!

As the State Opera is in the middle of extensive refurbishment, we came here instead. The building itself is stark concrete and resembles a cattle market rather than an arts centre. Nonetheless, the interior is a great improvement and the acoustics are good. Our first...More

We went to see a performance of Verdi's Aida and it was amazing! Very originally done with surprise elements such as the choir actually sitting in the audience. The opera building is conveniently located right next to the metro station and it has decently priced...More

We saw an excellent production of Tosca, sung in Italian with German and English surtitles. The orchestra and cast were superb. We found in December the theatre was over-heated, much more then the Berlin Philharmonie and the Konzerthaus. We bought our tickets on the internet...More

I've been there to watch the Rigoletto in an amazing contemporary scenic design. The hall is spacious yet cozy (perhaps just a little old-style) and the acoustic is incredible from any position. At the foyer there was live music performed by a string quintet before...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop

Germans are always more formally dressed than others. I noticed young people quite casual. I would not go completely regal, but a bit upgraded from normal. Don't forget to order the Riesling and a Brezel in the intermision... More
