We bought our tickets on line in advance and collected them from the Box office. The performances are very good as are the sets and costumes as it is all heavily subsidised by the government. Often tickets available on the day and that's the cheapest...More

Opera or ballet, the Deutsche Oper Berlin building is a modernist backdrop for excellent performances. The Deutsche Oper Berlin gets a big plus for each of these points: + Comparatively inexpensive tickets (budget around 40 Euros for most opera events), + unobstructed views from every...More

We enjoyed Barber of Sevilla, and what a great stage production. Real tractors, real cars, a stage-within-a-stage, the whole 9 yards of sets with great operatic singing and acting. This version was modernized and made the opera fun, but the settings were what made it...More

To be honest, I'm not a big ballet fan. BUT my wife loves it. As a special treat, tickets were purchased via the concierge and we dressed nicely for the show. The music will be familiar to most. The story is adapted by each troop...More

On line they quote a price. You pay and it is only when you finally get the confirmation email do you get your seat, and discover additional charges of 25% plus 4% plus more. A €136 ticket cost me €178. It is only then that...More

Keeping the original opera piece the Fledermaus , a lot of modern elements were infused but the singers quality was at high level

I went to see Don Carlo. The singers, stage setting (very minimalist), and the audience were just fantastic. The building itself is average, nothing special, but the performance great, fantastic voices. I especially liked the fact, the audience (dressed elegant casual) reacted very spontaneously to...More

It’s a modern building rather than a grand opera house but a stylish space and seats are comfortable. Saw a concert version of Maria Stuarda here and enjoyed it very much. Acoustic is good. Easy to get to on the U2 line. Look out for...More

The Opera has been under renovation for several years, now finally open. Really nicely redone and an exceptional experience as we enjoyed Parsifal by Richard Wagner.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
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
