Visited the Thursday lunchtime recital. Was very pleasant and interesting but get there early as the crowds form to get in from 11:30

Wonderful acoustics in this very modern concert hall with amazing design. Stewards positively stop any pics being taken to "ensure the architectural copyright" even when the concert has finished. Good restaurant needs prior booking

I have been there for classical, jazz, and film with live music. Every great city has a solid Philharmonic theatre... This is the one for Cologne. Enjoy! Hopefully you catch a show you want.

Rather than going to a normal event I went here to see Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros. The venue is quite good and for this band it was fantastic. I imagine that going to see a symphony here would be very enjoyable too.
