Amazing place for lovers of classical music. The sound is just great, and the Berlin Philharmonics have always ranged among the greatest orchestras of the world. Check out the monthly lunch concerts - they are super cool and for free (make sure to arrive half...More

Went to a concert last night of the Berlin Philharmonic. It was special. An unusual Bernstein piece and one by Shostakovich. Music was. Truly special. Hall, which has the audience in the round, was also a treat.

I have been visiting quite some renown concert halls this year. And whereas the Vienna Musikverein will remain in my memory the longest (both the building and the quality of the orchestra), the Berlin Philharmonie has a lot going for it as well. The modern...More

had wonderful seats behind the orchestra, so able to watch the conductor and all the interactions between the musicians, as well as enjoying the music. A wonderful concert hall..I can understand why Simon Rattle was reluctant to return to London!

I attended my fist Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra performance at the Chamber Music Concert Hall October 20th. Many consider the Berliner Philharmoniker the "world's greatest orchestra" and after the concert I tend to agree. The performance was sold out and Paavo Järvi conducted works by composers...More

If music is your thing, particularly classical music, make this a must do part of any trip to Berlin. The hall is magnificent! There is not a bad seat in the house. Acoustics are a marvel. This is a 'theater in the round' type of...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

Hi Shirley, you simply turn up. We arrived about 60 mins before and sat with a book and a coffee. This also means you can get a spot on the steps or possibly a seat!

I was there for a different performance, but I can tell you to get there early to see the disk shop, if you are interested, because after the performance they close it...And take a look around, the building is beautiful...
