Discover the Elbphilharmonie

By building the Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg certainly created a world wide highlight! Our concert hall, with its impressive glass wave architecture and interior furnishings, is unparalleled anywhere else in the world. The old quayside warehouse in the harbour can be seen as the anchor for our city’s maritime tradition. Anyone who has already been lucky to attend a concert at the Elbphilharmonie will confirm – this is where music belongs.
