I heard the violinist Daniel Hope and his orchestra here one evening. It was exquisite! I'd go again in a heartbeat.

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.

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...
