Berliner Philharmonie

Berliner Philharmonie

Berliner Philharmonie is the centre of Berlin musical culture which was specifically designed and erected for the Berlin philharmonic orchestra. There is a great history hidden behind the walls of the building. The philharmonie was opened in 1963 and was dubbed by the Germans ’Herbert von Karajan’s Circus’ on the spot. Herbert von Karajan is the famous Austrian conductor who took an active part in creation of the philharmonie. The outside of the building reminded of the tent circus while the golden colour made this impression even greater. The association with the circus is continued inside the building where the stage is located in the centre of the hall, with seats surrounding it on all sides. Despite the controversy, the philharmonie quickly became a model for concert halls all over the world. The building is acclaimed for the best acoustics. No wonder tourists all over the world as well as Germans fancy to come to the performance at the philharmonie.
