The Berliner Philharmoniker on tour

Join us on our travels!

Travel has been part of the Berliner Philharmoniker’s DNA from the very beginning. Just a few days after the orchestra had formed in 1882, the musicians set off on their first tour. To this day, concert tours are an important aspect of the orchestra’s life.

Fixed points in the tour calendar at the beginning of each concert season include guest appearances at the Salzburg Festival, the Lucerne Festival and one other venue. In addition, there is a major November tour, which usually takes the orchestra overseas, and the Europakonzert, which takes place every year on 1 May at a culturally significant venue and is followed by further concerts in the host country. The benefits and appeal of the tours are many. For example, the continuous work on the tour programme is an opportunity for the Berliner Philharmoniker and its chief conductors to work together in a particularly concentrated manner. No less important for the musicians is the encounter with their global audience.
