I mean, it's the philharmonic..

If you are in Berlin try to get tickets to see these masters. They usually have cheap(ish) tickets for students.

Free lunchtime concert. If you are a classical music fan do not hesitate to go and see. The only regret I have is that we were unable to see the a full performance. But this was a marvellous time I will not forget.

The Berlin Philharmonic impresses both with its building and with its orchestra. We regularly attend concerts here and have yet to be disappointed. Those lucky enough to catch Sir Simon Rattle before his departure from the Berlin Philharmonic, will be treated to a sublime evening of music. A Evgeniy Kissin recital here was sublime. Highly recommended, but tickets can be... More

The Berlin orchestra was out of town. Ended up watching old films by Hugo Nebeling, half of which featured Herbert von Karajan conducting the Berlin orchestra. Ticket was priced at 5 Euro but ended up paying 8 Euro because I purchased it online from their website. A blast from the past. It was a great experience - even it was... More

What's to say? The Berlin Philharmonic is one of the very top orchestras in the world. The Hall is striking architecture. There are two separate venues for performances - one big and one smaller. Tickets are usually available at cut rate 45 minutes before performances. You often can get very inexpensive tickets at the door from private individual selling unused... More

I am not qualified to judge whether of not the Berlin philharmoniker is the best orchestra in the world but it is hard to imagine a finer one. If you are then lucky enough to get tickets for a performance with Sir Simon Rattle conducting you will have a musical experience that you will savour for the rest of your... More

I travelled to Berlin in September and went to one of the free lunch time performances, it was incredible. A really nice treat. Hundreds of locals, both young and old gather for the performances and it's a great way to feel like a local, music is a universal language after all.

I walked all the way to find it; asking folks around and when I got there, it was in the middle of the day; closed; but I managed to take a few pictures from the outside. Nice.

There's a lot of amazing concerts. Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the best ensambles in Europe. The Philharmonic house built in 60s is wonderful taking into consideration its acoustic. You must visit it during your stay in Berlin!

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
