Sound Mobile Packed to the brim with countless instruments to try, the Sound Mobile comes to the city districts and to your kindergarten.

The Elbphilharmonie Visits the Boroughs

The Elbphilharmonie makes stops with the Sound Mobile at community centres and kindergartens all across Hamburg. Children embark on a fascinating journey to discover and experience the wonderful world of music in its entirety: playfully, creatively, with their voices, with their bodies – and by trying out the many instruments brought along by the Sound Mobile.

Two different programme are on offer: a ship voyage featuring classical music instruments in the first half of the season; in 2021 wonderful instruments and sounds in space can be explored.

The Sound Mobile is aimed at children aged 4–6.

Supported by the Stiftung Elbphilharmonie

Please note: Sound Mobile events are currently only taking place at community centres. Visits to kindergartens are not feasible at the moment.


Events taking place from April to June 2021 are now available to book.

The Programme

Voyage on the Sound Ship :October to December 2020

Ship ahoy! The Sound Ship is setting off on an adventurous voyage. The sea is roaring, the ships’ horns blare – and somewhere, so the rumour goes, lies buried a mysterious treasure. Together, the children set off in search of that treasure, and on the way they come across lots of orchestral and percussion instruments.

Voyage in the Sound Rocket :January to June 2021

»We’re on an important mission: we’re flying to the Planet Flexatone!« And we’re not alone: the shared rocket is in the hands of an experienced sound pilot – composer Terhi Theremini. Experience the waterphone, flexatone and hapi drum: wonderful galactic instruments that have never been heard on these shores before – with sounds you will never forget!
