With the latest amendment to the Berlin Senate’s Infection Protection Measures Ordinance, new rules for concert
operations also come into force at the Philharmonie Berlin on 15 January. In addition to the 2G rule (admission
only for people who have been fully vaccinated or have recovered), concert guests need either a current
negative test certificate or proof of a booster vaccination. Furthermore, the wearing of an FFP2 mask is
mandatory in the whole Philharmonie, including during the concert. Refreshments are not currently available in
the Philharmonie Berlin. However, the food truck in front of the building will be open to the public before and
after concerts (Potsdamer Platz entrance).
The first events of the Berliner Philharmoniker Foundation to be affected by the new regulations are the concert
performance of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta on 15 January by the Berliner Philharmoniker and Kirill Petrenko,
and the concert of the National Youth Orchestra of Germany together with the German National Youth Ballet
with works by Richard Strauss and Maurice Ravel on 17 January.
