This is a modern concert hall to hear classical music in a well designed acoustic setting. It is as expensive as all similar classical venues, has distracting tv cameras filming the main performances for their pay to view channel, and has a very unwelcoming mostly seat free atrium to grab a pretzel or drink before and during the performance. Be... More

went to the Tuesday open show (for free). had to stand in line for about an hour. there aren't really seats - people sat on staircases, tables, and pressed against the wall in the hall. still good acoustics. the show is about 40 mins. bathroom is free!

We were lucky enough to visit for the lunchtime concert on Tuesday. I listen to Classic FM on the radio on and off- but the experience of being in the lobby with hundreds of other people listening to such fine music was amazing and somewhat humbling...the musicians were so talented and I agree with other reviewers that every note could...

I've always heard of the incredible acoustics of this Hall and we got to hear them last night for a concert by the Deutsches Symphonie. Everything I expected. Beautiful sound and the concert was equally impressive. Only negative point is that the interior spaces, while efficient, are a bit shopworn. Needs at least some new carpets in the corridors.

The most amazing musical experience of my life. In the Philharmonic you can hear every note, in a way I have not heard before. Would return to Berlin just to visit this wonderful concert hall again.

We were so fortunate to hear the beautiful sounds in this unique building for free. Free concerts on Tuesday, check out their website for times and dates. It was an absolute pleasure to sit amongst a blended crowd of young local mums nursering their bubs to the local older generation, tourist from around the world, all parked up anywhere a... More

This is the home of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Tickets go on sale about three months before the actual concert and season ticket holders have already taken many seats; so book as soon as sales open. You can see other performers there too. The hall itself is modern with good acoustics and it is easy to see and hear from... More

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.
