Tube Talks

A ride on Europe’s longest escalator takes two and a half minutes – more than enough time to ask a few soul-searching questions.

82 meters long and 30 meters high, the Elbphilharmonie Tube is Europe’s longest curved escalator. The journey to the Plaza on the futuristic escalator takes around two and a half minutes. A great opportunity for a chat with celebrities visiting the Hanseatic city, with stars from the Grand Hall or with local Hamburg luminaries – from Jonas Kaufmann and Fatih Akin to Megaloh and Lena Meyer-Landrut.

New: a ride with Andrea Petković

From the tennis court to the escalator: as a tournament ambassador for the Hamburg European Open at Rothenbaum, Andrea Petković recently spent a few weeks by the Elbe. Of course, the tennis star also paid a visit to the Elbphilharmonie.

In the Tube Talk, she speaks about her goals for Hamburg as a tennis city, about the dream of being a rock star and about the courage to never give up.
