Superb building with amazing acoustics. Every seat gets a great view of the orchestra. Only criticism was the lack of obvious staff to you around>

I saw the Philharmonic perform a short concert and was very impressed. I normally don;t have an appreciation for this type of music but I'm glad I saw them. I would gladly see them again.

An evening at the Philharmonic was a highlight of our trip. We purchased the least expensive tickets, which put us high up behind the orchestra, but we really liked that different vantage point. The performance of a Prokofiev symphony, a Britten piano concerto, and Stravinsky's...More

The Berliner Philharmonie, home to the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, is an institution like no other. Its programs would probably account for some of the best in the world and the two concert halls would, again, rank among the best. Designed by Hans Scharoun, it is...More

Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades

streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
