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.

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

A maximum of 4 tickets per concert and a total of 10 tickets may be purchased per customer per transaction.

List of all Elbphilharmonie concerts still on sale

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

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.

New Procedure

Tickets for the 2017/18 in-house promoted concerts at the Elbphilharmonie and the Laeiszhalle (promoter: HamburgMusik gGmbH) were sold until 1 July partly in person at official ticket shops and partly online via ticket order.

The deadline has now passed and all registered customers are currently being informed (by 20 July latest) whether or not they can purchase their selected tickets.

All ticket orders are being treated equally: if demand exceeds the number of seats available for a concert, the tickets will be allocated at random from all orders submitted.

Questions and Answers on Advance Ticket Booking

  • Is an online order binding? If my ticket order is successful, am I required to complete the purchase process?

    No, customers are not required to go through with the purchase process. If the purchase process is not completed within 10 days, the tickets will be allocated at random to another customer from all remaining orders submitted.

  • When will customers be informed whether or not they can purchase tickets for their selected events?

    Once the registration period is over and the tickets have been allocated at random, all customers will be informed of their order status (around mid-July). 

  • What happens if an event is still not sold out following the ticket allocation?

    All remaining tickets will go on sale via the regular on- and offline booking procedure from mid-July.

  • Why is the number of tickets limited per person?

    A ticket limitation has been put in place to prevent the illegal resale of tickets and to give as many people as possible the chance to procure a ticket.

  • Is it safe to purchase Elbphilharmonie tickets on eBay, Viagogo and other consumer-to-consumer markets?

    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.
