Caffeinated classics: lunchtime espresso concerts at the Konzerthaus
It's the ultimate lunchtime treat: a chance to sip coffee in stunning historic surroundings while listening to soothing classical music.
The neo-classical concert hall or 'Konzerthaus' is one of Berlin's grandest buildings, with opulent interiors to match.
And the so-called 'Espresso concerts' provide a wonderful opportunity to indulge in a dose of culture without breaking the budget or disrupting busy schedules.
Lasting a comfortable 45 minutes, the weekly Wednesday line-up features members of the renowned Konzerthaus orchestra alongside up-and-coming talent.
Caffeine for the ears, and a musical interlude that's not just perfect for visitors, but ideal for busy Berliners themselves.
Konzerthaus Berlin: Gendarmenmarkt, 10117 Berlin.
Wednesday espresso concerts starting 2pm, tickets 8 euros available at box office or bookable online
