Please support the Kölner Philharmonie in our tenth year of collecting for people in need at Christmas. In keeping with the Christian spirit of Christmas, please leave Christmas presents for Cologne's homeless people under the tree in the Kölner Philharmonie foyer. Gifts (no alcohol please) will be accepted between the 2nd and 3rd Sundays in Advent before being taken to an organisation for homeless people. Monetary donations will also be collected and forwarded separately. Please contact a member of staff at the Philharmonie.
