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

I am a regular at the Berlin Philharmonic - having seen Daniil Trifonov, Radu Lupu, Andras Schiff and the lovely Martha Argerich performing there. It is filled with history and no matter how weirdly it might look from outside, the structure is so well thought...More

I visited the Philarmonic building when I attended a concert of symphonic music. The building has a modern architecture, the concert hall has a very good acoustics and visibility from any place in the hall. The services also are very good.

We went to a concert here on the first night of our visit. Wow! What an experience! My wife has played in an orchestra here and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

For me the best Philarmonic building I have seen as it is really old but has a unique appearance. Next to this building is the Staats- Bibliothek which desevres my biggest respect as I spent lot of time there for my studies!

We attended the last concert of the Philharmonie for 2017-2018 and it was fabulous. Great musicians. The acoustics of this hall are sensational, hard to find a bad seat anywhere and reasonably priced compared to other great halls.

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
