Visited Berlin specifically for Wagner Week at Deutsche Oper. This Berlin Behemoth opera house is a first class venue to see and hear a really great opera. Seats are very comfortable, rows are spacious and well defined, catering is excellent and staff is very efficient...More

The Covent Garden of Germany, outstanding soloists, orchestra and chorus in a magnificent building. Prices a little less than CG. In line with other German opera houses, catering is very poor. Very convenient to get there - walk straight out of the metro Deutsche Oper...More

We have been visiting Berlin twice a year for over 20 years. The options for cheap flights from London to Berlin has got better but Deutsche Oper poroductions are always and reliably of a high standard. We attend twice a year and always fly for...More

We are regular Opera attendees and it was a treat to see the rarely performed early Wagner “Rienzi”. Mainly known for the popular overture, it made for a fascinating evening in this modern Opera house. The seats were comfortable with excellent sight lines in the...More

Another one of the great musical venues in Berlin. The external of the bulding was rather plain and ordinary. Was not able to catch a performance here. Read many reviews regarding the excellent performances and facilities here.

I love watching operas, and so when I had the occasion to visit Berlin for the first time, one of the very things I did was look for an opera house. That's how I came across this wonderful venue. A friend of mine and myself...More

The building doesn’t win prizes for me, but we go to see and listen, and this visit for The Magic Flute was so disappointing. Admittedly we could only get tickets for the upper Circle, but we didn’t expect the production to hamper our views of...More

We bought our tickets on line in advance and collected them from the Box office. The performances are very good as are the sets and costumes as it is all heavily subsidised by the government. Often tickets available on the day and that's the cheapest...More

Opera or ballet, the Deutsche Oper Berlin building is a modernist backdrop for excellent performances. The Deutsche Oper Berlin gets a big plus for each of these points: + Comparatively inexpensive tickets (budget around 40 Euros for most opera events), + unobstructed views from every...More

We enjoyed Barber of Sevilla, and what a great stage production. Real tractors, real cars, a stage-within-a-stage, the whole 9 yards of sets with great operatic singing and acting. This version was modernized and made the opera fun, but the settings were what made it...More

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
