I wasn't able to get tickets for the concert I really wanted to see - tickets had sold out, which was really disappointing. I discovered, however, that you can actually go for FREE to lunchtime sessions in the Philharmonie. OK, not the Philharmonic itself playing, but the violinist I saw was amazing, and the atmosphere fantastic. What an incredible deal!... More

No other word can describe. can't miss in this fantastic orchestra. No matter what Concert is playing at the time of your arrival, don't hesitate and book yourself a seat ASAP. That is true for ALL kind of people. even if you are not a classical music fan.

The architeture is incredible, the acoustic awesome (you can hear a fly buzzing around). We saw a quartet palying modern violin. What a night. Paid 35 Euros each and had a great time.

Sitting in the Platzgruppe section - expecting to have very limited view of the performers, we found ourselves a couple of metres from the stage entrance and were able to gaze in wonder at the genius of the Emperor and Empress of the piano as well as watch them talking to one another as they left the stage - there...

managed to buy the final two places in a 2,400 seating auditorium to see Barenboim conduct the Wiener Philharmonic for the three final symphonies of Mozart. It was an experience to be cherished.

I appreciate classical music but I'm not an aficionado. However, when in Berlin it's time to indulge in one of the better orchestras & ensembles in the world. This theatre is not very large, but offers some stunning acoustics. Europeans really enjoy the arts and it shows with the crowd, ambiance and energy here. > Like most concerts, books ahead... More

We paid only 16 euros at an almost sold out concert for stage seats. Well worth it. Beautiful interior and acoustics.
