Great visions need a strong foundation. That is why well-known companies support the Elbphilharmonie and make its wide-ranging concert and music education programme a reality for current and future generations.

Custom-Made Sponsoring

Corporate sponsors of the Elbphilharmonie invest in one of the world’s most important cultural projects, which embodies prestige and reputation as much as ambition and innovation. Each sponsorship is tailored to meet individual interests and ranges from project-specific support to a long-term partnership.

Deutsche Telekom

Music is communication. And communication is one of the driving forces of our culture. By communicating with others, we evolve – and develop new ideas. The Elbphilharmonie is a place that shows how communication can lead to new, better and greater things: an innovative place where music and communication create closeness. A place where orchestras and soloists share what is important to them. As the Elbphilharmonie's partner for digitalisation, Telekom helps people share these experiences with one another, so that they can experience the uniting power of music everywhere.
