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. The first tours of the finished building take place in February 2017.

Guided Tours

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 break.

Tickets

Tickets for guided tours in February and March are now available to book again.

Tickets for individual guided tours can also be purchased from the Elbphilharmonie Visitor Center (Am Kaiserkai 62, opposite the Elbphilharonie).
