For security reasons, the number of visitors to the lunch concerts is limited to 1,500. Therefore, each visitor is given a chip at the entrance to the Philharmonie by a visitor services staff member. This chip is then handed back to enter the foyer where the concerts take place. It is not possible to reserve chips or to remove them from the Philharmonie for re-use. The bringing of folding chairs is not permitted for safety reasons. There are a limited number of seats available for visitors with disabilities.
Programmes for Foundation Berliner Philharmoniker concerts are available for 3.50 euros.
We offer introductions to Foundation Berliner Philharmoniker concerts in the main hall and in the chamber music hall. This may be a lecture, a discussion with one or more artists or some other form of communication about what you are about to hear in the concert hall. They begin one hour before the concert, and last about 30 minutes.
The use of the cloakroom is included in the ticket price of Foundation Berliner Philharmoniker concerts.
Please contact our lost property office if you think you have lost something at the Philharmonie.
