Much more than just house and techno

Musically speaking, Berlin is a city with many strings to its bow.

From pulsating beats in packed clubs, to talented buskers in the city's squares, music is an element of everyday life here. Experience Berlin's refined sensibilities by attending a classical concert by the acclaimed Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, based in a striking modernist building. The grand Berlin State Opera House, on Unter den Linden, presents many world premiers, while the neoclassical Berlin Concert House, on Gendarmenmarkt square, is renowned for its world-class acoustics. Many orchestras have successful programs adressed to children and adolescents, offering them playful access to instruments and compositions.
