Elbphilharmonie Magazine

There’s a lot to talk about when it comes to Hamburg’s new landmark: about its music programme, the many acclaimed guest artists, its unique architectural features and all the many exciting things happening in the city of Hamburg and its harbour.

The Elbphilharmonie Magazine covers all these topics and more – in features, artist portraits and photo series that offer an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Hamburg’s new concert hall, the Elbphilharmonie. The broad spectrum of topics has something to interest every reader: from classical music fans and newcomers to music to Hamburg locals and interested readers from near and far.
