Music Tours to Berlin

  • Vibrant and youthful city
  • Fascinating blend of east and west
  • Home to iconic 20th century landmarks

Berlin has evolved in recent years from being the symbol of the East/West division to the place where the two now meet and entwine. Berlin is a unique and fascinating city, which, since the fall of the Wall in 1989 has become one of Europe’s most buzzing capital cities. The colourful remains of the wall, sites of National Socialist conferences and the Prussian palaces are evidence of just some of the momentous historical events which have taken place here, while the city also displays the cutting edge in modern architecture.

Where to stay

A warm welcome awaits you at the friendly and well located Berlin International Youth Hostel. The centrally based centre offers superb facilities for students including a large group area with games and a flat screen television as well as a spacious room for rehearsals and concerts. Outdoor facilities include table tennis and a barbeque area for groups wishing to spend a summer evening enjoying the atmosphere of a ‘Grillfest’. The hostel’s location just off the Tiergarten, lends itself ideally for flight groups wishing to take public transport or walk into central Berlin.

Concerts

Concerts are possible for both choirs and orchestras in the famous Gethsemanekirche in the trendy district of Prenzlauer Berg in the former East Berlin. Berlin Cathedral and St.George's Anglican Church welcome choirs and recitals. Many more churches, if less well known, are hugely enthusiastic when receiving groups. The Augustinum Retirement centre has a purpose-built theatre and is very keen to receive our groups. Why not go further afield and cross the border into Poland (2 hour drive) and perform in the castle precinct in Szczecin?
