Berliner Philharmonie

Before we left Berlin, Lars wanted to have a look at the Berliner Philharmonie. It’s situated in the Herbert-von-Karajan-Strasse.

I had expected an old building, so I was in for a bit of a surprise. The Berliner Philharmonie, which was built in the beginning of the sixties, is famous for its architecture and acoustics. Its most striking feature is its yellow roof. The building is part of a neighborhood, which is called the Kulturforum and contains two concert halls.

    Berlin is certainly full of amazing and unique buildings, especially once the Big Dig began post-Wall. This earlier build is clearly a reminder that the quirkiness and invention and distinction are not all recent, however!

      Yes, Berlin is so interesting with all its new and old buildings. And the place, where the wall was erected, there have come totally new spaces, which earlier were in the Todesstreifen. Now you can see in the streets, where the wall was, and it makes me feel cold down the spin, when I see that. Also because I was in Berlin both before and after the Wende. And in both parts of Berlin.

    The “schieven architect” was also at work in Berlin…

      Who? Nowadays artists from the whole of Europa are coming to experience the development of a partially quite new city.
