Visitor Information

How to Book

Tickets for the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and the Laeiszhalle can be booked online or at one of our three ticket shops.

Book Tickets

Concerts at the Elbphilharmonie and at the Laeiszhalle are presented by a wide variety of promoters. Each season’s music programme (August to July) is announced to the public in the first half of each calender year. The programme remains ever-expanding as further concerts are added over the course of the season itself.

Several concerts, festival events in particular, will go on sale at a later date. The pre-sale start is stated under each corresponding event.

Available Tickets

The demand for tickets for the Elbphilharmonie still remains high, but there is always a frequent influx of available tickets.

To prevent the illegal resale of tickets and to give as many people as possible the chance to procure a ticket, a maximum of 4 tickets per concert and a total of 10 tickets may be purchased per customer per transaction.

2018/19 Season

Next season’s concert programme (1 August 2018 – 31 July 2019) will be announced in early 2018. Our newsletter will keep you up to date on the topic: Elbphilharmonie Newsletter (currently only offered in German)

Black Market

The high demand for tickets for concerts at the Elbphilharmonie has led to tickets being offered by illicit traders. These tickets are not only illegally offered at elevated prices, but they could also be forged or invalid.

We recommend that you purchase tickets only from official ticket shops, online at www.elbphilharmonie.com, or on official online platforms of external promoters to which you will be forwarded to from our website, www.elbphilharmonie.com.

Laeiszhalle is not located in the Elbphilharmonie

Take careful note of event venues in the concert calender. Not all events take place at the Elbphilharmonie. Events at the Elbphilharmonie are indicated with the venue name »Elbphilharmonie Hamburg«. The Laeiszhalle is a separate concert hall located three kilometres away from the Elbphilharmonie.

Advance Booking for »Organ Day«

During »Organ Day« Elbphilharmonie visitors have the choice between a 75-minute presentation on the pipe organ at 16:00, a presentation at 17:00 and an evening concert.

Ticket orders can be submitted for the concert between 21 November and 1 December (17:59 CET).

  • The time at which the order is placed is irrelevant.
  • All ticket orders will be treated equally: if demand exceeds the number of seats available for a concert, the tickets will be allocated at random from all orders submitted.
  • All customers that have submitted ticket requests by 1 December will be informed by mid-December whether or not they can purchase their selected tickets. The purchase process must then be completed within ten calendar days.
  • To give as many customers a chance to purchase tickets, a maximum of four tickets per concert may be purchased per customer per transaction.
  • Orders may also be registered at the Elbphilharmonie Ticket Shops.
Register for tickets for the concert at 20:00
