The Konzerthaus, or Concert Hall, located on Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin Mitte is widely regarded as one of the best concert venues in the world. Its beautiful interior is the perfect visual accompaniment to the exquisite music presented here on a nightly basis. The resident ensemble, the Konzerthaus orchestra, present a varied program of music from chamber music to symphonies as well as hosting a number of guest international orchestras, ensembles and soloists. Many concerts are family friendly, and they even offer a great children's music program.
Originally a playhouse, the Konzerthaus, designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, was all but destroyed during World War Two. Repairs began in 1977 and in 1984 it reopened. The exterior is regarded as a faithful reconstruction of Schinkel's original building. The interior however, was remodelled to suit its new purpose as a concert hall and was decorated in a neoclassical style.
