How to buy tickets

In addition to being the home of the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Philharmonie also plays host to other artists, ensembles and orchestras as regular guests. When purchasing tickets, please note whether your chosen event is a Berliner Philharmoniker Foundation concert or a guest event – recognisable by the organiser's note on the concert details page. The Berliner Philharmoniker Foundation only sells concert tickets for its own events.
