Classic Open Air

Set in one of Europe's most beautiful squares, Classic Open Air stages the romantic summer sounds of classical music presented by internationally acclaimed musicians, conductors and composers. The concert series attracts large crowds to evenings of music under the starlit sky, against the romantic backdrop of the Gendarmenmarkt which boasts some stunning architecture. The concerts have been running since 1992 and seem only to get better and better. The shows are not limited to classical music and have included opera, jazz, stage musicals, classic pop, soul, swing, blues and much more. The performances are also visually impressive - and not just because of the setting sun and stars - as they include fireworks, light shows and lasers.
