We were lucky to have our concierge obtains tickets to this performance; the soloist was fabulous but the whole evening was such a pleasure - and interesting to observe the architecture.

The Berlin Philharmonic is one of the world’s great orchestras. It is perhaps most famous for all those yellow-fringed DGG recordings but it is stunnng live. It has a distinctive modernist home. It’s also been blessed with great conductors and musicians.

Incredible experience! Absolutely stunning building and hall. The performances were beautifully played and received by all. The bar and cloak room staff were lovely and helpful. I would suggest in another ladies bathroom as the queue for that got quite long. Very pleasant evening however.

Astonishing construction from the mid-60ies (or 50ies?) by famous archtict H. Scharoun in the style of a ship. Good accustic. Buy row H for cheap seats (around 50-70 Euro; yes, that is considered cheap); these are in the back, but if you don't mind, you...More

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!
