#4 of 400 in Nightlife in Berlin
The Berliner Philharmonie (German: [bɛʁˌliːnɐ fɪlhaʁmoˈniː] (listen)) is a concert hall in Berlin, Germany, and home to the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Philharmonie lies on the south edge of the city's Tiergarten and just west of the former Berlin Wall. The Philharmonie is on Herbert-von-Karajan-Straße, named for the orchestra's longest-serving principal conductor. The building forms part of the Kulturforum complex of cultural institutions close to Potsdamer Platz.

The Philharmonie consists of two venues, the Grand Hall (Großer Saal) with 2,440 seats and the Chamber Music Hall (Kammermusiksaal) with 1,180 seats. Though conceived together, the smaller hall was opened in the 1980s, some twenty years after the main building.

  • Really enjoyed the concert and the hall. Good sightlines from all seats. Good acoustics from ours, which were behind and to the left of the orchestra. Plan ahead, tickets sell out well in advance of concert.
  • Fabulous performance in the world renowned Philharmonie. Ideal seating so close to the performers. Experiencing the storied history of a famous symphony. A Berlin visitor's unforgettable thrill.
