This concert is every musician's must visit site. Enjoyed Kent Nagano's conducting with his chamber ensemble.

Incredible atmosphere, a 1h concert at lunchtime aggregating students, workers, tourists, old persons and whatever, all in religious silence and sitting on the floor to listen to aclassic concert by hi-level performers.

My wife and I aren't really what you'd call culture buffs, but some things are must do's and the Berlin Philharmonic is one of those. We booked tickets to a concert that featured Argentine cellist Sol Gabetta and it was awesome. Pros: great experience (these guys are not inactive during a performance), striking architecture in the Philharmonie building, dress code... More

We saw the National Russian Youth Orchestra there during the Young Euro Classic Series. The Berlin Philharmonic has wonderful acoustics, but the performance hall and the experience of being there are hard to convey in words. A must do for any music lover.

The Berlin Philharmonic was fantastic. We managed to get some cheap tickets as international students and we were very impressed. The hall itself had amazing acoustics and was very nice to look at. We would definitely go again.

I went to Carmina Burana last June and I can't say that it wasn't something I regret one bit. It's a must do if you happen to be in Berlin to attend a Berlin Philharmonic Performance, you'll be glad you did!

We were fortunate to get two tickets for the Berlin Philharmoniker end of season concert at Waldbuhne in late June. What a fantastic experience. The Waldbuhne is a superb atmospheric outdoor amphitheatre . It was at its best on a lovely clear evening. The Philharmonic was conducted by the incredible young Venezuelan Gustavo Dudamel and he was just fabuluous. There... More
