Great place to watch artists and listen to live music. Even on the cheaper (and more distant) places one has a very good acoustic perception.

The Cologne Concert Hall is nice. Remarkably the architect realized a pedestrian square on top of the concert hall’s roof. At classical concerts, security staff often stops pedestrian to walk over the square as it can interfere the concert. The audience can enjoy a large...More

Not only enjoying the music on an Sunday matinée, but by chance we got into a concert where the conductor offered explanation to a Contemporary composition which was very interesting for both non-instrumentalist and instrumentalists/musicians.

Wonderful acoustics in this very modern concert hall with amazing design. Stewards positively stop any pics being taken to "ensure the architectural copyright" even when the concert has finished. Good restaurant needs prior booking
