A concert hall with a history and an extraordinary acustic
The Laeiszhalle opened in 1908 as the grandest and most modern concert hall in Germany. During the last 100 years all the greatest international stars from the world of music have been performing. From Maria Callas to Anna Netrebko, from Vladimir Horowitz to Lang Lang, from Ella Fitzgerald to Shirley Bassey, the Laeiszhalle has hosted them all. It is home to the city's professional orchestras, such as the Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra, the NDR Symphony Orchestra, the Hamburger Symphony Orchestra, to the concerts of Hamburg´s well-respected private promoters, its choirs as well as to the Elbphilharmonie Konzerte. The programme is enormously varied and enthralls more than 400,000 visitors a year. Organizers value the exceptional acoustic, the friendly service and the distinctive atmosphere of the hall. The »Großer Saal« (Grand Hall), with 2,025 seats has a magnificent neo-baroque ambience, the »Kleiner Saal« (Recital Hall) has a captivating 1950’s interior and offers a more intimate atmosphere with 639 seats. And the Studio E, with seating for 150 guests, has a charming small stage and an auditorium that gently slopes upward. In between and after the concerts the refreshment room (»Erfrischungsraum«), with its fresh lounge design, and the Brahms-Foyer, both a prestigious salon and elegant intermission foyer, are meeting points for artists and public.
