Christmas in Munich or Berlin- Music choices

My Wife have a make to decision to make. We can spend Dec. 24th and 25th in either Munich or Berlin. We are both musicians and are looking for an amazing musical experience (sacred or secular).

Thank you!

There are numerous venues in both cities , but given the dates , things are likely to be on the quiet side .

I always take Berlin over Munich. Personal preference. Not divine revelation.

Konzerthaus Berlin is a great place to see a concert. Konzerthaus Berlin's Dec 25th performances: https://www.konzerthaus.de/en/programm/25-12-2019

The Berlin Philharmonie is a great place to see a concert, too. The December schedule, which includes a few Dec 25 performances: https://www.berliner-philharmoniker.de/en/concerts/calendar/from/2019-12/

Neither has Dec 24 performances.

We often encounter fine musical performances at churches outside the regular service times-- some "free" but donations suggested.

Midnight mass on the 24th ?? We spend Christmas in Salzburg and find that pickings are slim on the 24th and 25th since most people want to be home with their families.
