One of the most visited cities in Germany, Hamburg saw nearly 8 million visitors in 2019. The second-largest city in the country, it is best known for its harbour and its cultural centres. Nestled within Hamburg, Germany is the Elbphilharmonie (Elbe Philharmonic Hall). The tallest inhabited building in the city, it is one of the most popular attractions here. Also called ‘Elphi’, this opulent concert hall opened its gates to the public in 2017 and has since been a jewel in the Hamburg skyline. Here’s everything you need to know about getting your Elbphilharmonie tickets.

Why Visit Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

Perched on River Elbe is the Elbphilharmonie, a concert hall and residential complex. Retaining its original brick facade from the 1960s when it was a warehouse, it also has a glass structure on top with a roof that is reminiscent of waves. A cultural landmark, it also features a plaza that gives visitors a 360 degree panoramic view of the sprawling city. An architectural marvel, it was designed by Herzog & de Meuron who used the existing warehouse to support the glass structure on top of it. The venue features ultra modern architecture inside and the glass structure is made of curved panels to enhance the design. When visiting, it is recommended that you take an Elbphilharmonie tour or watch a show.

What to See

The Tube

This 82m (270 ft)-long escalator gets you right from the entrance to a panoramic window that displays beautiful vistas in Hamburg in 4 minutes. The walls around the escalators are covered in reflective discs making for an incredible illusory effect. From here, another escalator gets you to the concert halls and the Plaza.

Grand Hall

The Grand Hall can seat up to 2100 people. The stage is at the centre surrounded by terraced seating. The acoustics of this hall was developed by specialist Yasuhisa Toyota, who has covered the hall with grooved plaster and paper panels to create a balance in resonance and added a sound reflector above the stage.

Recital Hall

The Recital Hall is on the tenth floor of the Elbphilharmonie. An intimate theatre, it covers an area of approx. 440 sq. m and is perfect for chamber music, lieder and solo recitals, jazz and world music. Thanks to its flexible seating and stage, it can hold up to 550 people.

Kaistudios

With 150 seats, Kaistudios is the smallest hall in the Elbphilharmonie. Also called the World of Instruments, it occupies the second and third floor of the building. This space is typically used for educational purposes — experimental music, seminars, workshops, and rehearsals.

Plaza

Nearly 40 metres above ground level is the Elbphilharmonie Plaza. The outer part offers an unbeatable view of the city of Hamburg and the surrounding River Elbe. You can enter without tickets, but if you want to skip the line, you need to book a ticket in advance.
