Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg

4.3
#1 of 32 in Shopping in Hamburg
Still under construction but already one of the city's major landmarks, Elbphilharmonie was designed to be the tallest inhabited building in Hamburg. Built on top of an old red-brick warehouse, the glass structure is meant to provide the city with a world-class concert venue with seating for more than 2,000 people. Hamburg is known for its vibrant music scene, and this concert hall, once completed, will provide a state-of-the-art stage for some of the finest music acts from around the globe. For now, you can tour the construction site with a knowledgeable guide. Public tours are available weekly, but remember that you must purchase your tickets at least two months in advance of your visit.

  • 2 tickets for a guided tour in English. But was not a problem. Guide very informative without too many facts and figures. The atmosphere was great brokered. Worth. Plaza alone is not enough.

  • The Elphi should anyway be a term the hamburgers, but grad for visitors to Hamburg the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg is one of the compulsory, if one is ever here. The observation deck creates a great overview of also free the port and the whole thing. Also, the ride to the platform with the escalator is class, very chic!

  • A wave-like or crown shaped remarkable building on the riverside. I was really really unlucky that I did not go inside the building because I was running out of time and there was a long queue. I believe you can book a ticket online beforehand and I recommend you do that if you want to face the ocean from the beautiful land mark of Hamburg. I also recommend to see this building from the opposite side of the river. You can visit the tunnel to reach the opposite side.
  • That's an architectual dream... It's really impressive to see the interior of the building. The escalator is pretty unique: about 80m long and it has a curve, so it is actually the longest, curved escalator in the world. Once up there, you get an amazing vie above Hamburg, which is worth seeing. I don't know about the restaurant up there, but there is one.
  • Stunning views from the top of this building. You can get a beautiful panoramic view of the harbour and the coast. It is mostly windy at the top floor so make sure you don't have any loose chains. Dont forget to dine at the restaurant in the building. It has a very nice beer tasting menu.
  • This is a pearl of architecture, no doubt. The escalator, the plaza, the balcony, everything is so cool and so well thought of. The restaurant and bar are good too. The balcony provides nice views. (warning: wind) It's sad that it's practically impossible to attend a concert here.
  • Amazing place! I absolutely love the sleek modern look and super pristine atmosphere. The acoustics are superb and the views of the harbor and city are spectacular! Great place and I had an awesome time here.
