Elbphilharmonie Plaza

You haven't seen Hamburg like this before.

Welcome to Hamburg's largest balcony: The unique viewing platform is open to the public and lets you see Hamburg with different eyes!

Europe's longest escalator, the "Tube", leads from the main entrance to the 6th floor of the quay warehouse at 82 metres. Its course is slightly curved, so that the end cannot be seen at the beginning of the journey. Thus the "Tube" itself becomes a surprising spatial experience through the entire depth of the former storage building. Arrived on the mezzanine level on the 6th floor, the most beautiful window to the Elbe awaits you. A huge panoramic window opens the beautiful view over the landing stages and the harbour. Also on the level is the entrance to the Störtebeker restaurant.

After another short escalator ride on the 8th floor between Kaispeicher and the glass superstructure, the so-called Plaza is located. At a height of 37 metres, visitors are offered a circular path on the outer edge of the building, which offers a unique view of the city and the harbour on all sides. With over 4,000 square meters, the Plaza is also larger than Hamburg's City Hall Market! Like everything at the Elbphilharmonie, the Plaza is a special place with special architectural challenges: From the curved ceiling construction, whose sound-absorbing substructure was planned in 3D, to the floor bricks, which were fired in a coal furnace especially for the Plaza and laid in a special pattern, to the six-metre-high wind deflectors, which are stable solely due to their geometry and the strength of the glass.

Access to the Plaza for everyone

Since 5 November 2016, access to the Plaza has not only been open to concertgoers, hotel and restaurant guests, but also to anyone who would like to enjoy the fantastic view over Hamburg. True to the motto "One house for all", a visit to the Plaza is generally free of charge. However, as the maximum number of visitors is limited, access is regulated via free tickets. These tickets are only available on site on the same day. This can lead to long waiting times, especially on weekends. Up to 18 weeks in advance you can book tickets for a certain time on the website of the Elbphilharmonie for € 2,00. Only with our day ticket you have guaranteed access without having to fix a certain visiting time beforehand.

Located at a height of 37 metres above ground level, this public viewing platform is open to everyone and offers a breathtaking 360° view of the city and the harbour. The Plaza is open to everyone – not just concertgoers and hotel guests.

In the interior area of the Plaza you will find stairways and lifts to the concert halls, the takeaway café »Deck & Deli«, and the lobby of »The Westin Hamburg« hotel. Information on the Elbphilharmonie, books, CDs and souvenirs are for sale in the Elbphilharmonie Shop. Visitors can walk all the way around the Elbphilharmonie on the outer Plaza.

 

Access to the Elbphilharmonie Plaza
