Virtual reality promises immersion in fascinating worlds – and visitors to the Virtual Konzerthaus can expect a unique 360° concert experience in the midst of the orchestra. An application developed by the Konzerthaus Berlin in cooperation with the Berlin University of Applied Sciences (HTW) makes this extraordinary all-round perspective possible. Looking through the virtual reality glasses, a 360° concert scenario comes to life around you; by turning you head, you can look in every direction in the room.
You can test the result of this collaboration yourself in the vestibule in front of the Great Hall. Wearing VR glasses, you are immersed directly into a Konzerthausorchester concert – right in the midst of the musicians. This allows you to experience classical music in a fresh, new way – always during “EinBlick frei” and the breaks of concerts performed in the Great Hall.
The collaboration also resulted in the interactive AR app “Konzerthaus Plus”. Those who download the app to their smartphone will discover digitally expanded spaces on the pages of the new season brochure, on special postcards and soon in the whole concert hall, thereby learning, hearing and experiencing even more.
You’ll find “Konzerthaus Plus” in the App Store or Google Play Store. Downloading the app is free of charge.
Open the app and place your smartphone camera over the image with the AR logo.
On each page of the season brochure with an AR logo, you can test “Konzerthaus Plus” and take off on a tour of discovery.
