Presenting: Our guided tours

»Did you know that…?« Without our guides and their comprehensive tours of the building, the Elbphilharmonie’s guests would undoubtedly miss out on one or two things.

The Elbphilharmonie guides show some 1000 people per week around the concert hall. in the course of their guided tours of the Plaza and the concert hall, they supply inside information about the history of the Elbphilharmonie, about special features of the architecture, and about the concert programme, as well as insights into daily operations behind the scenes. They have an answer to every question, so it's no surprise that it takes a whole month of intensive training to qualify as a tour guide.

Experienced Elbphilharmonie visitors will get just as much out of the tours as newcomers: our knowledgeable guides give everyone the chance to discover new things, including a detour into the Grand Hall!
