Realised that Mutti was conducting Schubert, Straus and Mozart concert and booked tickets on line. They sell out quickly, but managed to get cheaper ones (35 euros)and they were delivered by post to UK within a week. Doesn't matter where you sit, the acoustics are superb, amazing building, brilliant performance. Go if you can! PS: number 200 bus stops and... More

Very difficult to get tickets on line so I emailed a friend in Germany who called the local box office and got us great seats for 56 euros. Plan ahead to hear one of the top symphonies in the world.

Music was wonderful, the hall had excellent sound and was comfortable. We were in the smaller hall. Berlin is a great place for classical music (not to belittle "our" Leipzig).

We managed to see a lunch time concert free at 1pm every Tuesday. It was fantastic and enabled us to see this great building. You would have heard a pin drop whilst waiting for the music to start.brilliant experience for any music lover.

I was here at the Kammermusiksaal for the Family and fun concert. And I found it rather riveting. Loved it..It was great to watch children take part in the concert as well and we got to join in the singing. Afternoon well spent.

Impressive architecture from the outside and from the inside. You can certainly discuss at length about the beauty and attractiveness of the entrance - but the excellent acoustics should be undisputed. Just great. By the way, the staff are also very accommodating. Thanks for the great evening.

The free lunchtime concert was a wonderful moment of beauty in a bustling and busy holiday. I'd recommend arriving early to bag a seat as the 30 minutes we allowed ourselves wasn't enough, but we loved every moment of this chamber concert all the same. A must for any visitors to Berlin!

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.
