Attended the Vivaldi Night at the Berlin Philharmonic on 21 February. Very professional and moving performance that exceed my expectation. The building and Kammermusiksaal is very beautiful, with a modern and eccentric design made to bring out the best acoustics. Highly recommend attending a concert here even if you are not very experienced in music (just like me).

This was a major highlight of our four day trip. The concert hall was amazing in itself and I'm sure there wasn't a bad seat anywhere. Make this a must do item on your itinerary.

Cant take pictures in the foyer- bad. Hans Scharoun Architecture- Good. Auditorium, free water jug at bar also good. Layout confusing in a hurry but fun after the event. Links well to Potsdammerplatz too. There's a good indian restaurant near there too.

We heard a performance of Mahler's 6th Symphony conducted by substitute conductor Daniel Harding. It was completely spellbinding. The acoustic of the hall literally engulfs you with the sound of the orchestra and all its intricate detail. Conductor Harding brought out all the overwhelming drama, passion and pathos of the score in a performance that has got to be one... More

Not only an architectural highlight, but you are blessed if you get to hear the Berlin Philharmonics here. The program is always composed of the world best acts.

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.
