Sadly the concert we wanted to attend at the Philharmonie had completely sold out (there's a message there!) so instead we went to one of the free lunchtime concerts in the beautiful foyer area. We were virtually mowed down by people who were worried about missing out as numbers allowed in were limited. Great to chill-out for an hour, listen... More

Visited the Philharmonic on the recommendation of one of my German patients. Was extremely affordable and proved to be a lovely night in Berlin. The concert hall was nice and the performance was great. Go if you can!

This is one of the worlds great orchestras. You can book in advance online, or if you have a good hotel concierge, they may be able to get you tickets

Managed to book a couple of weeks before visiting an excellent Mahler 3rd Symphony concert. The building is an architectural gem. Great to see the audiences gathering in the public areas for drinks etc. The Hall itself is beautiful and acoustics are perfect for hearing one of the best orchestras in the world.

we saw the san fransisco youth orchestra while we were in Berlin and I'm so glad we did. A beautiful building in the stairwells and the hall as well and in the concert hall itself. Well worth a visit.

Spent last night at the Berlin Philharmonic; purchased a ticket same day at box office, all very easy. Close to Potsdam Square (U Bahn and S Bahn); beautiful concert hall, fantastic world renowned orchestra. A must for those interested in music and/or the home of one of the world's most historied orchestras.

If you love classical music, there is noting I can tell you about the Berliner. If you hate it, don't go there. In all other cases, it will be enough to say that this place is a unique experience, like Wimbledon or the like if you love tennis. Starting from architecture, passing through orchestras, directors and programs–you'll love it.

Been there for a classic music concert (Brahms, Schubert) played in January 2016 and before that for another event in 2015. Totally fascinated by the professional performance of the orchestra and a conducter, perfect acoustics and unique atmosphere. Also have to commend the staff on a very friendly attitude! Would definitely go there again.

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.
