Philharmonic Hall

The Berlin Philharmonic is the city's concert hall and home to the city's Philharmonic Orchestra. The facility actually has two venues, one with 2,440 seats for orchestra concerts and a chamber music hall with 1,180 seats. The hall was constructed in the early 1960s, and it replaced one that was destroyed during World War II. The chamber music hall was added in the 1980s.

The building is know for its acoustics, its bright yellow color, and its asymmetrical, tent-like shape. The innovative design of the concert hall and the unusual architecture initially caused some controversy, but today the design serves as a model for concert halls all over the world.

Though the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra existed in some form since the late 1800s, the orchestra and its chief conductor Sir Simon Rattle celebrated its 50th anniversary in October 2013. This marked 50 years since the orchestra debuted in its new home. The Berlin Philharmonic Foundation offers guided tours of the orchestra hall and chamber music hall. The tours cover topics such as the architecture and acoustics of the building and the history of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Tours are offered in German and English, though other languages are offered for group bookings made ahead of time.
