As a Konzerthaus visitor, the Contipark Parkgaragengesellschaft mbH (address Taubenstraße 14, 10117 Berlin, The-Q) offers you a reduced price for parking: for 60 minutes you pay Eur 2 and with the exclusive Konzerthaus rate you can park 6 hours for Eur 5.50 only. Simply have your parking ticket validated at our service table and then pay normally at the automated machine on Taubenstraße following the concert.
We open the doors 1 hour before a concert begins, 75 minutes before if there are concert talks. For afternoon concerts in the Musikclub, doors are opened 30 minutes beforehand.
At these times, you can purchase tickets for the concert at the box office located in the entrance foyer. Doors to the concert hall are opened 30 minutes before the concert is to begin.
Year-round, you can directly access the box office and coat check on the ground floor by using the entrances to the left and right of the stairs on Gendarmenmarkt. From March to October, you can also use the stairs when you already have your tickets.
For disabled visitors, an elevator is available and can be accessed by using the stage entrance (Charlottenstraße). Handicapped toilets are located both near the stage entrance and at the Café Konzerthaus. Handicapped parking can be found on Charlottenstraße (near the stage entrance) and on Markgrafenstraße (near Taubenstraße). At our own Konzerthaus concerts, the companion person of a disabled visitor will receive a free ticket.
You can speak to one of our team members at the service table, located in the foyer, to ask questions, get tips or to leave your comments. There, you can also purchase CDs, books, post cards and carrying bags etc. as well as have your parking ticket validated to receive the reduced parking rate for the underground garage.
During concert intermissions, our partner, Mosaik-Services, provides excellent snack and beverage service in various locations – depending on which concert hall is being used for the performance. You can reserve your table, drinks and food in advance, either in person or by calling +49 · 30 · 848 55 666.
The length of a normal concert is approximately two hours (including intermission), one hour for children’s concerts. Concerts lasting significantly shorter or longer than two hours will be indicated in the brochure and/or here on our website.
These introductory events, which start about an hour prior to a concert, are designed to be an informative and interesting way to get into the mood of a Konzerthausorchester symphony concert. You can find out when a concert talk will take place by checking our monthly brochure or by looking on our website.
These talks alternate between the Konzerthaus concert halls. Find out where the talk will be taking place by going to an information booth or asking one of our team members on duty.
You can dive deeper into the music both before and after a concert. Following Konzerthausorchester concerts in the large concert hall, you can attend moderated discussions with the artists of the evening. Look in the monthly brochures or on our website to find out when these discussions will take place.
In addition to pre-concert talks, our evening programs also offer details about artists and the works being performed during a concert. You can purchase a program from our team members on duty either before a concert or during intermission.
In addition, we release our evening programs for download starting a few days before each concert. You can find a corresponding link on the detail view page for each concert.
