managed to buy the final two places in a 2,400 seating auditorium to see Barenboim conduct the Wiener Philharmonic for the three final symphonies of Mozart. It was an experience to be cherished.

I appreciate classical music but I'm not an aficionado. However, when in Berlin it's time to indulge in one of the better orchestras & ensembles in the world. This theatre is not very large, but offers some stunning acoustics. Europeans really enjoy the arts and it shows with the crowd, ambiance and energy here. > Like most concerts, books ahead... More

We paid only 16 euros at an almost sold out concert for stage seats. Well worth it. Beautiful interior and acoustics.

We were in Berlin for our Wedding Anniversary and booked up at the Philharmonic. Not the full orchestra but a lively programme of music from an 11 piece ensemble and a superb soprano Anne Sofie von Otter. We were also impressed with the venue, a beautiful hall with good facilities.

went here as a university student from the US. our student seats were behind the orchestra, on the same level. could almost reach out and touch the musicians! however, seats had slanted backs and were very uncomfortable. nevertheless it was a great experience.

It was our first time and we were really pleased. Although not our favorite type of music, we could appreciate the talent of the musicians.

The building is strikingly unusual. The acoustics are amazing. Although the full house meant there were a few thousand people (in my estimation), there was never a crush. This is one of the best orchestras in the world and a highlight for music lovers.

Try and see any concert here to experience the hall produced by a great architect who managed to produce a structure with great acoustics. As for the Berlin Philharmonic, well honestly, need one mention it is one of the greatest orchestras of the planet?
