I went for the lunchtime concert on a Tuesday, which is free. I had no queue to get in (around 12.30; it starts at 1). The building, the staff and of course the music, was all great. They do food there when the lunchtime concerts...More

We were privileged to hear Blomstedt and Berlin Phil (Bruckner 3 and Mozart K448) then Simon Rattle (piano!) and violin, clarinet cello ensemble late night. Last minute tickets at the booking office (open from 5:30pm). Generally best to book beforehand by internet.

Acoustics are amazing; the orchestra is world famous, so one would expect a great concert; however the way the Hall is constructed makes it so much more special. It felt like in some "Shaman circle" :), with energy going through the roof. I was in...More

Acoustics here is perfect. And the design of the place is so interesting and also practical, allowing large groups to move about with ease. It is an impressive building, as you'd expect in this city where music is so important.

We went to see the facility as much as to jear the music. It did not disappoint. I recommend this as a nice ending to a tiring travel day. Relax in the wonderful acoustics and beautiful music.

If you can get concert tickets, go! This venue has outstanding acoustics. If you do not fancy concerts, take a look at this concert house. It raised a few eyebrows when it was first built, and the Berlin folk promptly gave it the nickname "Circus...More

This is the most impeccable sound I've heard from any symphony hall in the world. And I've been to many. Best of all the cheaper seats get the best! Eschew the ground floor and go for F, G or K. And it doesn't need to...More

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

You can find the answer to this question by looking on the calendar of the Berlin Philharmonic. It is difficult to get tickets to hear Simon Rattle. We saw the Berlin Symphony instead. Wonderful! It tells you how to contact... More
