Here are our ten favourites:
1. Snow Globe
No matter whether it's winter or summer – our lovingly-designed snow globe makes people's eyes glow with delight – children and adults alike. Against a plain background, the stylish item quickly turns into an elegant decorative feature in your home. With a daily view of the miniature Elbphilharmonie within your own four walls.
2. Pen Holder
No less decorative is the »white skin« pen holder: it's genuinely unique, as each piece of »white skin« is as unique as the walls in the Elbphilharmonie Grand Hall. That means the specimen on your desk will be the only one of its kind. Incidentally, the Hasenkopf fabrication company produces the elegant originals.
It's always a good idea to take an umbrella with you when you go out in Hamburg. Whether you choose a big or a small one, our umbrellas don't just look good, they also keep you dry outside. And with a dash of humour, the smart accessory can even be transformed into a cheerful sunshade. Try it and see!
4. Music Box
Elegant to look at, nice to listen to: our miniature barrel organ, available in silver or gold finish, will soon add a musical touch to your home. If you operate it properly, it will even play the Ode to Joy from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony: a pocket-sized memento of the Elbphilharmonie's opening night in January 2017.
For everyone who wants to have some fun discovering the Elbphilharmonie from home, we recommend the Elbphilharmonie Memory. Our version of the classic memory game made by Ravensburger shows all the interesting corners of the concert hall, from the pipe organ and the wooden panelling in the Recital Hall to the roof terrace. With pictures like these, it's twice as much fun collecting pairs of matching cards!
6. Rubik's Cube
Puzzle fans don't fare badly either: if you enjoy a tricky problem, why not try your skills on our Rubik's Cube? If you find the solution, you'll have six fabulous views of the Elbphilharmonie.
Sound familiar? For the nth time you find yourself digging around in the depths of your handbag to find your keys. You can make things easier with a keychain, which has the nice side effect of enhancing the keys. This Elbphilharmonie keychain certainly does both!
8. Elbphilharmonie ABC
Whether it's meant for your grandchildren, nieces and nephews or your own children: the Elbphilharmonie ABC in German uses charming drawings to guide children through the special features of the concert hall. For example, you can use a giraffe to discover the Grand Hall. How about it?
9. Advent Calendar
Open the golden box and the first thing you see is 24 individual boxes making up the Elbphilharmonie Grand Hall. Then, as Christmas draws closer and closer you can discover a new architectural feature of the building each day. And it goes without saying that exquisite chocolates await you each time you open a box…
10. Porcelain Tableware
…and the chocolates will taste especially scrumptious on the Elbphilharmonie tableware! From espresso cups to serving plates – the entire service manufactured by Dibbern in Hamburg is an eye-catcher with its elegant and timeless Nordic design. The hand-painted platinum decoration on the inside of the bone china rounds off the collection to fine effect.
