Laeiszhalle Hire Hamburg’s traditional concert venue offers halls and spaces suitable for concerts, gala events, receptions, conferences and meetings, or as a photo, film or video location.

Grand Hall

Music history is constantly being written in the Grand Hall by some of the world’s most famous artists, and has been ever since it opened in 1908. The neo-baroque concert hall offers excellent acoustics in an extraordinary environment for large symphonic concerts and diverse performances. A particular attraction is the hall’s unique glass ceiling.

Recital Hall

The Recital Hall is one of Hamburg’s most resonant music halls and is suitable for instrumental and vocal concerts of small instrumentation. The small concert hall was refitted after the Second World War and belongs to a very small group of concert halls that have an authentically preserved 1950s design.

Brahms Foyer

In addition, the Brahms Foyer is the gastronomic centre of the Laeiszhalle, where the audience meets to enjoy refreshments during the intermission, before and after concerts at the built-in bar. The neo-baroque hall adds a certain elegance to every event and owes its name to the marble sculpture of Johannes Brahms, which was created in 1909 by the Leipzig artist Max Klinger.
