Heard them perform "Romeo and Juliet" by Prokofiev. It was marvelous. I had seen them perform on TV, but they were just phenomenal in person.

We attended a performance of the Berlin Symphony, with the lovely addition of soloist Joyce DiDonato. What to say, other than it was sensational. The acoustics are lovely, the seats were spacious and comfortable, sight-lines were clear.... and oh, that music! The building is un-lovely...More

A large concert hall designed with seats above the stage level. A front row spectator would not have the feel of looking up at the performers.

Purchased tickets via the internet well in advance of travel. The building itself is an architectural and acoustic gem. We happened to be there for a concert conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. The concert was amazing, nevertheless I have never seen/heard such an appreciative audience.

The Berlin Philharmonic building is quite unique. The acoustics are excellent, and it was quite interesting to have comfortable seats behind the orchestra. We enjoyed an evening of Strauss, Rachmaninoff, and Shostakovich.

The concert I heard at the Philharmonie was fabulous, a Shostakovich cello concerto and a Richard Strauss symphony. The famed orchestra is truly awesome, and the audience went totally wild at the conclusion of each piece. Well-deserved, in my opinion. The concert hall has fabulous...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

I'm interested in more information about the lunch time shows. We'll be in Berlin late September 2017. What show length can we expect, should we book in advance and is it recommended to bring your lunch, or is food valuable for purchase?

Yes, about two hours. The Berlin Philharmonie is very near Potsdamerplatz. We walked back to our hotel - the Hilton. No problem. Lots of people around.
