Overview
More
The Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg’s newest cultural landmark, officially opened in January 2017. An attraction for Hamburg residents and visitors from all across the world, the concert hall lies on the banks of the Elbe and is surrounded on three sides by water. Perched on top of a former harbour warehouse is a new glass structure that rises up to a height of 110 metres above ground level. In between: the Plaza, a public viewing platform with breathtaking 360° views. Variety, artistic quality and accessibility are primary criteria by which the Elbphilharmonie measures its musical profile. The Grand Hall is the heart of the Elbphilharmonie. No member of the 2,100-strong audience is seated more than 30 metres away from the conductor. Classically designed, the Recital Hall’s elegant milled wood panelling ensures perfect acoustics. Plenty of room for creativity can be found in the Kaistudios a few floors below: participatory projects and musical instrument workshops open to all age groups.

We visited the viewing platform around 9a before it started become busy on a beautiful Sunday morning...was disappointed that I wasn’t able to find and history and cost...,simple plaques here and there would not spoil the contemporary looks.

This overall experience was great - there is a brilliant elevator up to the top balcony where you get panoramic views of the port - it really is lovely and well worth doing.

Descriptions do not do this justice. You just have to go see it. The ticket to visit the building is free; we just walked up to the ticket window and were given one immediately. Then comes this amazing escalator ride - can't explain that, you'll...More

This place is extremely special, it looks stunning from the outside, however it is very nice from the inside out as well. Worth visiting when you are in Hamburg... Stay in a city center hotel and visit the harbour during the day...

A must see architecture, even if we did not listen to a performance. Beautiful view on Hamburg and harbor. And amazing that it is free.

Maybe you can try your hotel. Sometimes the hotels are buying tickets for performances and then sell them to their guests. Or try the reselling websites. A number of people are "friends of the Elbphilarmonie" and get... More
