We were able to get excellent tickets the day of the concert. We consider the top price tickets at E40.00 to be very reasonable. Dress was casual and the Locals in the seats near us were extremely friendly.

Great acoustic, great architecture, best views and atmosphere. Not to be missed. Try the nearby "Rheingarten" for a stroll at the river and a glas of the local beer "Kölsch".

Take in a free visit to the Philharmonie by going to one of the Thursday lunch sessions. You must check the website as they are not on every Thursday. They begin at 12:30, but you really must be in the queue to enter at 12:00-12:10...More

Special designed music hall for classic or vocal music. Very special sitting area, of course for a good sound and view. Good organized with good orientation to find your seat. Located near the main station and the well known cathedral in cologne.

I really enjoyed going to the Philharmonie on New Year's Eve. It was so nice (for a change) to have large seats with your own arm rest! Sitting behind the stage was interesting. You could almost see the musician's sheet music. Great acoustics. Business casual,...More

We are a large group visiting Cologne from the evening of 29 April and leave late afternoon on 30 April. Are there any concerts that we could attend and if not, can one just visit the concert during the day?
