Kölner Philharmonie

In the location's words:

In the Philharmonie in the Museum Ludwig building complex, you can experience almost everything that the diverse Cologne music world has to offer: Since 1986, events of various genres have been held here, from classical opera to jazz or pop concerts.

What makes this location so special? The architects Busmann & Haber emulated an amphitheater in the planning of the huge concert hall to ensure perfect acoustics. That's why the Heinrich-Böll-Platz above is also closed off during concerts: otherwise, as a listener, you would be disturbed by a hall. The beautiful spiral staircase and imposing concert organ - the construction of which, by the way, was only approved after the room concept had been completed - create a very special atmosphere. Every event you attend here promises to be a unique experience. During the breaks and before the concerts, you can also visit changing exhibitions in the foyer, which are thematically oriented to the program: you can view documentaries about composers or collections of instruments, but also take a look behind the scenes of a musical event.

No regular opening hours

Mondays - Saturdays 12 - 20 h
& always 120 minutes before the concert starts on all concert days.
