Nestled in the HafenCity quarter of the Hamburg-Mitte district, the Elbphilharmonie sits on the gorgeous Grasbrook peninsula of the Elbe River. Your tour starts at the Baumwall underground station, from where you can already feel the unique atmosphere and breathtaking charisma of the Elbphilharmonie. As you walk towards the incredible structure, you will get an opportunity to soak in the splendid sights in the ‘Grosser Grasbrook’ area, which has recently become the site of the largest urban redevelopment project in the entire continent. You might be able to spot some of the buildings and container ships from the old ‘Hamburg Free Port’ as well.
Take the curved escalator that connects the ground floor and the Plaza, an observation deck on the 8th floor of the brick section. From this vantage point, you will get an opportunity to gaze at the splendid city of Hamburg that stretches into the distance. Your guide will briefly explain the history of the concert hall and the old warehouse building below. You will learn about the various nuances of the Elbphilharmonie that make it one of the top venues in the world for concerts. Part of the Elbphilharmonie’s astounding brilliance is that the modern exterior hides the world’s most scrupulously designed interiors, especially the famed concert halls that are widely considered to be acoustically perfect.
