    The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the world's best and their resident venue is the Philharmonie, comprising the Grosser Saal, or large main hall, and the smaller Kammermusiksaal, dedicated to chamber music. Tickets sell out in advance for the nights when star maestros conduct, but other orchestras and artists appear here as well. Wednesday's free Lunchtime Concerts fill the foyer with eager listeners of all ages at 1 pm between September and June. Show up early as these concerts can get very crowded.

    The entryway to Europe's second-largest performing arts center is the renovated former train station, whose grand foyer down to the ticketing window was retained. A modern, state-of-the-art theater with 2,500 seats and a 900-square-meter stage was attached where the former train tracks had once lain. More than 120 events annually draw culture lovers and performers from the world over, including the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig and John Neumeier's Hamburg Ballet.

    Widely regarded as one of the best in Europe, the Frankfurt Opera is known for its dramatic artistry. Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss both oversaw their own productions for the company, now housed in a modern glass-walled building in the city center.

Ticket prices from €15 and intermission refreshments from the in-house restaurant, Fundus, which also serves after-theater dinner.

    Oberammergau is best known for its Passion Play, first presented in 1634 as an offering of thanks after the Black Death stopped just short of the village. In faithful accordance with a solemn vow, it has been performed every 10 years since 1680; it will next be performed in 2022, after being postponed for two years due to Covid. Its 16 acts, which take 5½ hours, depict the final days of Christ, from the Last Supper through the Crucifixion and Resurrection. It's presented daily on a partly open-air stage against a mountain backdrop from late May to late September. The entire village is swept up in the production, with some 1,500 residents directly involved in its preparation and presentation. Men grow beards in the hope of capturing a key role; young women have been known to put off their weddings—the role of Mary went only to unmarried girls until 1990, when, amid much local controversy, a 31-year-old mother of two was given the part.

    Silent green presents concerts, films, and readings in what might be the city’s most unique venue: a former working crematorium, which opened in 1910 and shut down in 2002. Events happen in both the 17-meter-high domed former funeral hall and the underground concrete crematorium, as well as on the outdoor lawn during the summer. Occasional 90-minute guided tours cover the building’s history; see the website for scheduled times. For refreshments during both show and non-show days, the MARS Café & Bar serves a weekly changing lunch menu as well as coffee and cakes in the afternoon.

It also houses two smaller performance spaces—the Roter Salon and the Grüner Salon—which host everything from retro Motown nights and salsa classes for all levels to touring pop and rock acts.
