  • The children’s opera orchestra also performs during the festival. The young musicians are already true professionals and have been the subject of enthusiastic reviews in the past. Tickets to these events are comparatively cheap. So make sure not to miss this special concert of young classical musicians!  
  • The festival takes place at the State Opera House on Unter den Linden and the Berlin Philharmonic concert hall. Both venues have hardly any parking spaces. It is therefore essential that you arrive by public transport. The Staatsoper bus stop can be reached by bus lines 100, 245 and 300. The Berlin Philharmonic can be reached from the Potsdamer Platz S-Bahn station or by bus (line 300, Philharmonie stop).
