The Konzerthaus is a magnificent concert hall situated between the French Cathedral and the German Cathedral at Gendarmenmarkt Square. It honours poet, philosopher and historian Friedrich Schiller, who's regarded as one of the most significant dramatists and lyricists of the German language.

The first hall on the site was built by Friedrich the Great as a theatre venue in the early 1800s

The theatre was subjected to major damage during the bombing of World War II. Rebuilding began in 1977 with the exterior faithfully replicating the original design. The inside was modified to meet the needs of its new role as a concert hall. It opened in 1984 with a gala concert performance by the Berlin Symphony Orchestra.

In addition to being a wonderful building for aficionados of architecture the Konzerthaus is considered to be one of the acoustically best venues for concerts and opera in the world.

Today, the Konzerthaus is home to the Konzerthausorchester symphony orchestra. Their performances range from chamber music to major symphonies and from early to comtemporary classical music. Each season they present a special theme.

A variety of tours are available ranging from free walk-throughs to family and group tours for a very small fee. More information is available on the Konzerthaus Berlin website.
