Children and Families

Discover the whole world of music at the Elbphilharmonie and the Laeiszhalle. We offer interesting, interactive concerts for every age group.

Twinkle Concerts

Twinkle Concerts (»Funkelkonzerte«) are sometimes funny and playful, sometimes quiet and reflective, but they always make the world of music accessible to children in a unique way. The concerts take place in the Kaistudios, the Recital Hall and even the Grand Hall of the Elbphilharmonie. These events are tailored to the special needs and abilities of the respective age groups.

Additionally, our popular »Elfi Baby Concerts« for families with infants up to one year of age, as well as for expectant mothers, continues this season. These concerts take place at the Elbphilharmonie, but also at cultural centres in various Hamburg districts.

Family Day

Family Day at the Elbphilharmonie features not only an abundance of concerts suitable for children in both halls, one or two surprises are also in store on the Plaza and in the foyers – with music from classical to pop, where you can join in, groove along, have fun and experience things, or simply listen and lose yourself in your dreams. From small to big ensembles, for young ones and those young at heart. Everyone is welcome!

What is even better than listening to music? Making your own! This is the theme of the Elbphilharmonie’s music education programme, which includes age-appropriate concerts, creative workshops and musical encounters that allow visitors to actively participate.

Whether it's an instrumental workshop you're interested in, the family orchestra or the gamelan ensemble – at the Elbphilharmonie you can not only listen to music, you can join in and make music yourself! Different participation formats offer something for everyone: for children and adults alike, for beginners to the more advanced.
