The historical information on the construction of the Elbphilharmonie. I liked the quick admission and the great view. Unfortunately, there was no insight into the concert halls.

Our guide told the story of the planning and construction of the Elbphilharmonie with a lot of humor and anecdotes. The history of the port of Hamburg was not neglected either. In terms of organization, the timing was very good. The only small suggestion for improvement was that we found the meeting point relatively difficult to find. This certainly had something to do with the harbor festival. Perhaps a more central location (e.g. directly in front of the entrance to the Elbphilharmonie) would be better for all those who don't know Hamburg inside out :-).

Die abwechslungsreichste, informativste, lustigste und einfach beste Führung für die Elbphilharmonie, die ich je hatte! Luca ist ein wunderbarer Tourguide, dem man ewig zuhören könnte! Super interessante Details und Infos, die man sonst nicht alle zu hören bekommt. Nächstes Mal in Hamburg unbedingt wieder! Vielen Dank!

Hat alles gut geklappt. Der Guide war pünktlich und nett am vereinbarten Treffpunkt. Die Gruppe umfasste 20 Teilnehmer. Also auch nicht zu viele Personen und man hat alles gut sehen und verstehen können.

Claus told us a lot about the Elphi on this beautiful day. Afterwards, we attended a concert. The knowledge we had acquired beforehand was very helpful.

A Splendid Walk to the Elbphilharmonie

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.

Inside Elphi Plaza

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. Upgrade your ticket to include a refreshing Störtebeker beer at the Störtebeker Taste & Shop, or French rolls and coffee.

What's not allowed

  • In rare, special cases (mainly for security reasons) the Elbphilharmonie reserves the right not to allow access to the Plaza. In this case, the partial amount will be refunded.
