If you love, or even just like, classical music you must see a concert in this venerable hall that provides you a surround sound/view of the orchestra. Just need to check if the Berlin Philharmonic is playing as they are often on tour; but the state opera orchestra of Berlin often also plays there and they are fabulous.

We went to the free concert, which was an amazing performance by a trio. It is held in the foyer and is quite strange as there is only seating for the infirm so everyone else covers steps, desks and the floor in general. Good option if you can't go to a real concert

This is the second time we have had the opportunity to attend a performance at the Philharmonic with Sir Simon Rattle as conductor. The concert hall surrounds the musicians so there are no bad seats - every seat has a great view. The acoustics are perfect. This is definitely the most modern and creative space for concerts that I have... More

We visited Berlin at the end of June and we had the opportunity to hear the famous Berliner Philharmoniker orchestra in it's own base. What a building, what an excellent acoustic!

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
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.
