Elbphilharmonie Tour - Scandal to Architectural Wonder

Spectacular atmosphere around Hamburg's new landmark and world-famous concert hall with an experienced tour guide. Discover with us the Elbphilharmonie with all its facets. The tour starts at Baumwall underground station, from where you can already feel the unique atmosphere and breath-taking aura of the Elbphilharmonie.

After the exterior tour, you will ride up the world's longest curved escalator and gain access to the Plaza. After the tour, you can then enjoy the breath-taking view at your leisure and take snapshots for the family album. Your experienced tour guide will share entertaining anecdotes and extensive insider knowledge with you. Many questions are hidden behind Hamburg's new landmark.

Today, it is a world-famous concert hall. Your tour guide will enlighten you! From the - perhaps - too perfect acoustics in the Great Hall (no tour of the concert halls included) to a unique view. A professional tour guide will explain to you how the construction delays came about and what the Elbphilharmonie means for Hamburg today. Together we take a balanced look at the advantages and disadvantages of the project. You will be provided with many facts and insider knowledge during the tour.
