The Bavarian culture minister Ludwig Spaenle has announced that an architect will be chosen next year for the new hall and construction will commence in spring 2018.
There will be two auditoria – one with 1,800 seats, the other 600.
The site (pictured) is behind the Ostbahnhof. The cost is estimated at 300 million euros.
Unlike London, there is both political and public consensus behind the project.
