He is a frequent guest of orchestras like the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London, the Pittsburgh Symphony, and the Oregon Symphony Orchestra, and the orchestras in New Jersey and Indianapolis. 
An impressive debut in the USA in 2010 has led to multiple engagements with orchestras such as the Pittsburgh Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Baltimore Symphony, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Houston Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, Cincinnati Symphony, New Jersey Symphony, Calgary Philharmonic, Vancouver Symphony, Oregon Symphony, Milwaukee Symphony, Colorado Symphony, and the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra. 
Christoph König has conducted a wide range of opera repertoire as Kapellmeister (staff conductor) in Bonn. More recent opera experiences include productions at Zürich Opera, Teatro Real in Madrid, at the Staatsoper Stuttgart, at Deutsche Oper Berlin, and a Rosenkavalier in Chemnitz. 
An increasingly important role play his recording activities with the British record label RUBICON and with NAXOS. With his orchestra in Luxembourg, the start of the collaboration with RUBICON has produced two CDs with works by Schubert/Berio and Beethoven/Méhul, four more recordings and a Beethoven Cycle are planned. Very special is this collaboration because it reflects in parts the interesting and creative programming in his concerts in Luxembourg. With NAXOS, the first collaboration is producing two CDs with music of Louise Farrenc, a third one is already planned. Other CD recordings include Melcer with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra (HYPERION), Beethoven Symphonies with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra (DB Productions), Schoenberg, Prokofiev and Sibelius with the Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto Casa da Música (Ao Vivo) and Mozart, Wagner, Prokofiev and Beethoven for CHANDOS. 
König was born in Dresden where he sang in the celebrated Dresdner Kreuzchor. He studied conducting, piano and singing at the Dresdner Musikhochschule. His early work as a conductor took him to master classes given by, amongst others, Sergiu Celibidache and Sir Colin Davis, with whom he worked as assistant conductor/ Korrepetiteur at the Dresden Opera/Sächsische Staatskapelle. He began his professional career as Erster Kapellmeister at the Opera in Bonn.
