Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg
(3.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This magnificent building should be a boost to the Speicherstadt, the part of Hamburg on the Elbe that traditional warehouses and transshipment companies existed. That impulse is there. Also now there is no activity in the building, is the course there are already good at. Above the seven-story parking garages, hotel and apartments starts a world of wonderful round shapes, a little Zahra Hadid, but just a little more practical. Beautiful rooms, beautiful views of the city. Come and see!

  • Another example, unbelievable, urban recovery: where there were old warehouses was created a district where the old warehouses have been converted into luxury apartments (some incredibly beautiful) and this structure was created from scratch. It looks like a boat. The Interior is incredibly elegant with a very long escalator lined with white. The Foiler is broad's were eventually. The view you can enjoy from the balcony is a 360 degree view of Hamburg and its port. Tip: instead of waiting in line to get tickets (free!) on the ground floor of the Philarmonica (always quite crowded), just cross the street and you find an Office always desert where just ask how many tickets and be satisfied. CONSIGLIATTISSIMA.

  • The Elbphilharmonie building is a new landmark for Hamburg, having been recently completed after a 10 year build. It consists of a new glass structure atop a traditional red brick warehouse building. ...  more »

  • Beautiful building! It will be great for the representation of hamburg and serve as an excellent concert hall with futuristic design. I am really looking forward to its completion.
  • Stunning. With all the story how they went over their budget by miles, it is great to stand in front of the building and enjoy it's beautiful lines
  • Plaza offers a great view, even at night. Entrance is free, but capacity is limited. The shop is quite overpriced.
  • Nice building but nothing really impressive. Especially taking into account the years and money spent. However, as it's considered to be a (recent) landmark for the city, it worths a visit.
  • I'm not looking at the waste of money and massive planning failures that happened here. It's, so far from the outside, a wonderful and impressive building.
