We were fortunate to catch a Jazz Night last year. This is a must do if you love music. Great ambience. Any seat is a great seat. And the acoustics are simply phenomenal. Don’t be surprised if you see some locals getting up and dancing...More

The Musikfest Berlin happened to be on when I was visiting the city. What a fantastic way to conclude my amazing trip by attending a performance here on my last evening. It is easily walkable from the UBahn station Potsdamer Platz and the layout of...More

Although our pre-booked tickets were not expensive, and we were sitting at the top of the concert hall, we thoroughly enjoyed the concert.

What a wonderful concert! As a professional musician, I have to admit that, indeed, Berlin Philharmonic is one of the best symphony orchestras in the world. The concert hall has excellent acoustics and comfortable seats. We enjoyed the concert very, very much.

I got a ticket behind the philharmonic. Great location and an unusual way of viewing the symphony. I prefer the classical theaters, but the acoustics were very good. Check the program , as they are playing some music, which is more unknown. I didn't enjoy...More

We attended the opening night of the Berlin music festival in this concert hall. It is huge and very modern design. Basically, you can hear the music bombarding in the hall. We booked our ticket before our departure. It is way worth to do this.

I went for a concert during lunch time. You have to get there well in advance, because the place gets crowded quickly. The concert is given in the main entrance hall, next to the cafeteria. It's an unusual location, where everybody sits on the stairs...More

We walked over less than 30 minutes before the concert and was able to buy seats in the upper level of the hall. The Hall is unlike any other venue that I’ve seen in the almost passage-like stairs to find your seats. The performance we...More

Were lucky to get tickets to A.S. Mutter and D. Barenboim concert with friends - the sound and decor of the Philharmonic absolutely added to the delight of the event.

Berlin Philharmonic and Vienna Philharmonic were arguably the world's two best orchestras. Sitting in their own courts for a concert is a must for classic music lovers. The tickets were not too hard to get, especially a few months ahead. The hall has 360 degrees...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
