We went just before a Thursday evening performance in the hope of getting tickets. We were not disappointed. 16 Euros for tickets on benches behind the stage or 27 Euros 'in the Gods'. We chose in the Gods which were great but the bench tickets looked fabulous, though less comfortable. Lovely music, very comfortable concert hall. Only issue was the... More

I came to Berlin on a class history trip, but one night our professors took us to the Philharmonic, and I really liked the change of pace. The building is beautiful, and is a historical experience of its own! I would definitely recommend this for someone who isn't interested in bars or clubs but still wants to find spend a... More

The concert hall was a very short walk from our hotel, which made the whole evening perfect. "The Damnation of Faust" is not exactly easy concert material, but the orchestra and soloists were just fantastic. I am a total classical music snob (really more of a classical music jerk, honestly) and this might have been the best concert in my... More

We heard the Berlin Phil playing Mozart, Schubert and Richard Strauss conducted by Riccardo Muti. I'd booked the tickets online before we left and they were pricey and not many tickets were left. If you haven't booked beforehand, it's worth checking online to see if the cheap seats (behind the orchestra) are available at the last minute. The performance was... More

The main auditorium is fabulous for acoustics. Plan well ahead to get tickets or ask someone who is a " friend of the Philharmonie" to book for you if you want to hear the Berlin Phil. Good public area, very efficient cloakroom and bar area. Some people dress up and some don't, very relaxed.

Riccardo Muti was there for fantastic concerts. It is a shame that this conductor can be here only once in a while.

Every Tuesday at 13:00, there is a free concert. You don't need to order or buy a ticket. Just go there by 12:00 and surely you will have a sit. If you have time and you like classic music, I really recommend of this visit.

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.
