For me the best Philarmonic building I have seen as it is really old but has a unique appearance. Next to this building is the Staats- Bibliothek which desevres my biggest respect as I spent lot of time there for my studies!

We attended the last concert of the Philharmonie for 2017-2018 and it was fabulous. Great musicians. The acoustics of this hall are sensational, hard to find a bad seat anywhere and reasonably priced compared to other great halls.

The air control is inadequate. We were 4 rows from the top of the building and it was like a sauna. The uncomfortable temperature overwhelmed the music

This was in the open air at the Olympic park easy to get to via S Bahn, sadly it rained. However, the music was excellent.

It is not the concert hall that matters, it is the Berliner Philarmoniker that matters. The building is a bit run down but the acoustics and the #1 Orchestra in the world is worth the ticket price.

We've been attending concerts here since Berlin's philharmonic hall was dedicated in 1963 in a concert under the legendary Herbert von Karajan. Don't be deceived by the exterior which is blotched and peeling. The concert hall, designed by Hans Scharoun, is in the shape of...More

Charlottenburg
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
