We attended the free performance on Tuesday. From the outside the building is nothing special, I would even say rather ugly. But the concept is nice, offer a free classic music concert to everyone interested. It was a pitty that I don't understand German. Because there is a storytelling between the songs. The concert starts at 1pm. If you really... More

I've always wanted to go to the Berlin Philharmonic and we were lucky enough to get €10 tickets for 'But what about the noise...?' with the Percussionists of the Berlin Philharmonic in the Chamber Music Hall. The Chamber Music Hall is a beautiful building and even though we were in the seats furthest away (€10s after all), we had a... More

I was blessed to hear the opening night concert of the Philharmonic in October 1980 (under direction of Herbert von Karajan, I believe). So I eagerly anticipated the concert I attended 36 years later. This concert just happened to include my favorite composers, Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Dvorak, so my review has to take that into consideration. Berlin is "heady" with... More

The perfect Saturday night in Berlin with Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philarmonic. Loved the acoustics and the programme. Great seats. Also a pre concert introduction.

The building of Berlin Philarmonic is a bit strange from outside but a real diamond when you visit the interior, especially if you manage to find tickets and watch a performance. In the ground floor you can also visit the well organised museum of the Philarmonic. The staff is polite and helpful. The tickets we found (we went there to... More

We got tickets on the door for 8 EUROs each for this concert. Orchestra conducted by Jonathan Nott consisting of music students were of course top notch (think NYOGB), but somehow the foyer particularly felt tired and lacking in atmosphere. perhaps it would be better with the BPO in the evening.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
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 down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
