We really enjoyed our night with Swedish Young talents during Young Euro Week. The only Pity was there was long queue at the bar during the break, even there were 2 halls Which served the drinks. They need to add more Human ressources to serve the drink or food to the guests, so we will not only have 5-10min left to drink all the wine and water. Danke

The concert hall of Berlin is one of the fine buildings that dominate Gendarmenmarkt. The concert hall is a classically inspired building with a hexastyle column entrance supporting a pediment with scenes of classical drama. The hexastyle columns are also the entrance way into the portico with fantastic views of Gendarmenmarkt the area around. Unusually, the building has a stepped gable inspired roof begin the main front pediment, which is itself also a pediment, but with scenes depicting the muses.

Visitors are allowed to enter the building, but not the concert hall (unless there’s a concert) and it’s interesting an empty concert hall where you can see the seating and stage in all its glory.

A fantastic building with many interesting architectural features. Definitely visit the Gendarmenmarkt and the concert hall just to see this fantastic landmark of Berlin.

Do yourself a favour and see a concert here.

The Great Hall is achingly beautiful and acts as a portal to another space and time.

Though the musicians were unfortunately amplified the evening we went, the acoustics were still fantastic and the experience was simply vibrant.

If you're having a dreary day, this is an instant remedy. Prices vary and we'd recommend the stalls (mezzanine.) From there you get terrific views of the stage, the building and the audience.

Located in the Gendarmenmark, which is described as one of most beautiful squares in Berlin. The Konzerhaus is one of three important buildings. It is in the centre with the German Cathedral on the left and the French Cathedral on the right. The French cathedral is called this because it is known as the French Dom, which the German word for cathedral is Dom, but the Dom in this case refers to the domed roof. It was build in the early 1700’s by the Huguenot community which were given sanctuary in Berlin. There is a museum inside to the Huguenots and it is no longer a church. The German Cathedral was built by the Lutheran community, also in the early 1700’s and is now also a museum to German History. The Konzerhaus is still used for classical concerts and recitals and if you are lucky enough to may visit on a day when they are practising. They also run regular concerts, so if you are interested in classical music, get yourself some tickets and have a night of culture. If you are in to architecture, then this is the place to visit. It is easy to get to, with at least 3 U-Bahn stations in the vicinity, but you can also walk to it from the Museum Island. The square is surrounded by Cafes, so there are lots of places to sit, relax, drink coffee and eat cake – what a better way to spend some time after a busy day sightseeing. Definitely worth a visit if you have a spare hour or so.

We attended a Festliche Weichtskonzert in the Konzerthaus last evening.

What a fantastic setting for a concert. The building has been restored and the architecture alone is worth a visit.

Getting in and out of a concert and getting hats and coats checked in the cloak room is often problematic but at this concert hall it all seem to work seamlessly.

The dress code is mixed so if you don't have your formal wear casual attire is very acceptable.

We thoroughly enjoyed the concert and recommend it if you are interested in classical music it is an excellent venue with lots of concerts every month.

If you visit in December it is adjacent to the Gendarmenmarkt the Christmas market which is also worth the visit.

Berlin is host to so much art and culture, and with the city being home to the arguably the world's best orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic, it is no wonder that the city's Konzerthaus gets overlooked. But I was surprised to see so few reviews of this amazing building and arts centre.

It is worth the walk up to Gendarmenmarkt just to marvel at the reconstruction of Schinkel's original design which was severely damaged during the Battle of Berlin. Shinkel's neoclassical tendancies are prominent here, as they are with the Altes Museum on Museum Island; in fact the designs are very similar. The true beauty of the building is on the inside, adapted from Shinkel's designs and in true keeping with neoclassicism, the theatre is open, bright and delicately decorated with a stunning organ.

As a musician myself, I had attempted to buy a ticket to see the Berlin Philharmonic who were playing with Anne Sofie Mutter, but failed miserably as anyone trying to buy a ticket to see the Phil would had they not bought it months or years in advance. The true blessing of my failure was the reward of seeing the Konzerthaus Orchestra in their place. It was a wonderful evening of fantastic music, played by talented musicians in a beautiful setting in seats that were much cheaper than they would have been in England, and the wine before hand wasn't bad either!

We had a fabulous experience at a Bruckner concert in the Grosser Saal, and the Konzerthaus Orchestra was wonderful! The acoustics in this room are amazing, the design is elegant and luxurious looking, and the experience is well worth the price of the tickets. We sat in Rang 1, seats 9 and 10, and these were great seats overlooking the orchestra with a clear view facing the conductor which was very interesting. The audience was very appreciative and educated in classical music concerts which only added to a very enjoyable evening.

I am staying at the Hilton Berlin which is only a few hundred yards from the Concert Hall and the German church and the identical (except it is 19 cm shorter) French church. The concert hall sit between these two churches and there is a big square in front of the concert hall. During the day I stopped and took pictures and noticed they were setting up a couple of screens and speakers outside. When I was returnig to my Hotel after a long day of site seeing I heard music and walked over to see the concert inside the hall being simulcast on the outside. The square was packed with people and I saw a wonderful concert including "Ode to Joy" by the youth symphony of Europe. What an amazing experience. The cafes across the street were fill with people all with their chairs turned watching. Fantastic!

This is a beautiful old building in the centre of the city and home to the Berlin Konzerthausorchester (the other Berlin orchestra). There are a variety of concerts on offer and I would definitely recommend a visit. There is a small restaurant in the theatre where we ate beforehand.
