Guided Tours

Take part in a guided tour of the Elbphilharmonie to explore and learn more about the unique architecture of the new concert hall.

Guided Tours

A concert visit is the best means of exploring and getting to know the Elbphilharmonie’s unique concert halls, spectacular foyers and outstanding acoustics. We offer guided tours through the Elbphilharmonie for guests that wish to visit without attending a concert.

Our regular guided tours of the Elbphilharmonie building take you through the old Kaispeicher warehouse, the Plaza, the foyer areas and the heart of the Elbphilharmonie, the Grand Hall. In addition to exciting stories about the beginnings of the Elbphilharmonie and details about the architecture of the new Hamburg landmark, we also provide information on the operation of the concert hall and its music programming.

  • All tours start from the Elbphilharmonie Visitor Center opposite the Elbphilharmonie (Am Kaiserkai 62).
  • Please arrive at the Visitor Center 15 minutes before the start of the tour. Late arrivals (later than start time) may not participate, and are not entitled to a replacement tour or a refund of the purchase price.
  • Tours do not include a toilet break.
  • Our guided tours are physically demanding. This is due, in particular, to the staircases extending over many floors in the Grand Hall foyer that must be climbed by foot.

Tickets

Guided tours through the Elbphiharmonie are planned according to the Elbphilharmonie’s concert and rehearsal schedule, and are released for sale 12 weeks in advance. We are unable to fulfil requests for dates that fall outside of the indicated time periods – this includes group guided tours.

Summer Break

There are no guided tours on offer in July.
