Interactive visit

You do not have the chance to come to Hamburg and visit the Elbphilharmonie straight away? Make use of the interactive drone flight. The interactive video Slow&Motion shows the foyers and the big concert hall.



Elbphilharmonie completely sold out? Not quite true. The demand for tickets for the first Elbphilharmonie season is incredibly high, but there are still tickets available for certain concerts, for example for the Elbjazz Festival in June. Furthermore, new concerts will constantly be added. Check this list to stay up to date.


More than just a concert hall

The Elbphilharmonie with its impressive glass facade and wave-like roof rises from the former Kaispeicher building at the western tip of HafenCity. Between the old warehouse and the glass structure is the Plaza - a public viewing area that extends around the whole building.
Inside are not only two concert halls, but also a hotel and residential apartments.


Browse through the history of the Elbphilharmonie

Today is the big day: Hamburg will celebrate the grand opening of the Elbphilharmonie. All those interested in its history will find a quick overview of the history of the Elbphilharmonie, from 1875-2016, from the original Kaispeicher to Hamburg's new landmark Elbphilharmonie in the Discover/Project Development section.


The Elbphilharmonie opened with a spectacular show

Hamburg's new landmark officially opened its doors yesterday and impressed the first visitors, among them Federal President Joachim Gauck and Chancellor Angela Merkel. With Beethoven's Ode to Joy the magnificent opening concert set the benchmark for all further concerts to follow. A  spectacular light show turned the new concert house into a lively work of art as such itself and melted with the music from inside to one big firework of light and sound.


Worldwide press coverage

More than 120 international journalists covered the opening of the Elbphilharmonie, getting to know the concert hall and Hamburg, the city of music.
