Konzerthaus (concert hall) Berlin

Konzerthaus (concert hall) Berlin

Located in one of the most beautiful squares of the city, this masterpiece of classical architecture,

behind its impressive façade, not only has a long history but also an attractive program. Just like the German cathedral and French cathedral, the central building of the Gendarmenmarkt, the Konzerthaus, has a long and varied tradition. In the 1770s Frederick the Great ordered the transformation of the Gendarmenmarkt and had the French Comedy House built. Since then, the repeatedly rebuilt building has served as a comedy house, national theater, state theater and, for a short while, even as a Prussian parliamentary.

Many greats of music history have already found themselves in this house. For example, in 1789 Mozart attended the performance of his opera. Paganini and Franz Liszt gave guest performances, and Richard Wagner conducted the Flying Dutchman here. After being destroyed in World War II, the building had to be reconstructed. Between 1979 and 1984 it was rebuilt as a concert hall. Since then, great national and international conductors and orchestras frequently appear here.
