If you can get concert tickets, go! This venue has outstanding acoustics. If you do not fancy concerts, take a look at this concert house. It raised a few eyebrows when it was first built, and the Berlin folk promptly gave it the nickname "Circus...More

This is the most impeccable sound I've heard from any symphony hall in the world. And I've been to many. Best of all the cheaper seats get the best! Eschew the ground floor and go for F, G or K. And it doesn't need to...More

This is an expensive place to come to a concert - and that of course is why you would come...but its worth coming even to visit the building. We came to the Chamberhall to hear Bach's Luther Cantatas....absolutely beautiful....If you are in going to be...More

This was the first time here and was amazed how close one was to the stage and which allowed a somewhat intimate relationship to the music-making. The hall is a wonder just to look at both outside and inside, with superb facilities for refreshment before...More

First of all it's a fascinating building with apparently no right angles. We went to the Bach Mass in B Minor concert conducted by Ton Koopman after arriving that morning from New Orleans. It was delightful.

Love the free concerts here. Come early though to guarantee a spot. They start at 1 pm so I would come at 12:30 pm (latest). Go on their website to see the program beforehand.

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

You can find the answer to this question by looking on the calendar of the Berlin Philharmonic. It is difficult to get tickets to hear Simon Rattle. We saw the Berlin Symphony instead. Wonderful! It tells you how to contact... More

At the Philharmonie, there is no "dress code". Our audiences wear suits and evening wear as well as jeans and T-shirts. Most guests, however, consider a concert at the Philharmonie as a special event for which they dress... More
