The Berlin Philharmonic is one of the finest in the world. We were lucky to get tickets and thoroughly enjoyed the concert.

Currently closed for major refurbishment but have visited on past occasions. Watch out for free lunchtime concerts (usually on Tuesdays) but get there early for a place in the queue. Tickets are expensive although much less than in London. There is a routine for queing until the interval when some regulars leave the main hall and are prepared to sell,... More

I go there to watch a wonderful concert with an orchestra some soloists and choir. and it was free! so you need to browse on Berliner Philharmonic's website to know some free event and I guess all of them are worthy to watch !

Go 10% for the architecture and 90% for a bliss of world class musique experience... P.S. It does not always have to be the KuDamm or the musicals. there is more - check out eth Philharmonie and seize the moment ;-)

Very likely it was the last time I had the opportunity to see the two together.The conductor was Sir Simon Rattle who is soon going to resign. After the performance the applause would not end. As earlier I purchased my ticket from someone in the lobby that had an extra; a relative had become ill and could not go to... More

If you get a chance to see the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra, it will be one of the highlights of your visit to Berlin. We saw them play Dvorak and Prokofiev, and they were superb.

Although I thought the exterior looked striking but confused, the contemporary auditorium is stunning. Despite being seated way up high, the acoustics were extremely good and the view panoramic. Walking around the building during the interval, when there was still summer sunshine outside, was delightful as light washed through architectural coloured glass over a very well-dressed audience. As expected the... More

One of the legendaries and more awarded beside Deutsche Grammophon and with the extraordinary majesty of Herbert von Karajan, are the universal reference for any listener of classical music in the world.

As a keen classical music lover (and violinist) I've always wanted to go an see the Berlin Phil and I was completely blown away by the awesome sound of the orchestra and the acoustic. I definitely recommend the guided tour of the Philharmonie, very interesting! (at 2 every day I think?)

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood. 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 theaters 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.
