The box office at the Philharmonie is closed from 1 July until 18 August. Tickets can only be booked online or by telephone during this period. The ticket hotline (+49 (0)30/254 88-999) is open Monday to Friday, between 9 am and 3 pm. Payment is only possible by credit card.

There will be extensive building work in the Philharmonie during July and August. As a result, there will be no lunch concerts and guided tours during this period. Guided tours begin again from 1 September, every day at 1.30 pm. We wish you an enjoyable and restful summer break. 

Season opening concert with Kirill Petrenko

On 23 August, the Berliner Philharmoniker will open the new season – together with their new chief conductor Kirill Petrenko. The programme includes Alban Berg’s Lulu Suite and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in D minor. The season opening concert is already sold out, but the event can still be viewed live in the Digital Concert Hall. To celebrate the inauguration of Kirill Petrenko, the Berliner Philharmoniker invite all Berliners and guests of the city to an open-air concert at the Brandenburg Gate. Admission is free, and the work performed will be Beethoven’s Ninth, under the direction of Kirill Petrenko.
