Discover tradition and modernity in Hafencity
When visiting Hamburg, be sure to explore the Elbphilharmonie. The Elbphilharmonie is a state of the art concert hall located in the HafenCity quarter of Hamburg and is lovingly called “Elphi”. The concert hall is a defining feature of the Hamburg’s skyline and may have already replaced the landmark St. Michaelis Church. The architects have created an exciting fusion between the old quay warehouse and a hypermodern glass construction that is reminiscent of a huge sailing vessel. The glass exterior with its curved and carved panels offers a spectacular panoramic view of Hamburg City, harbor and the river Elbe. The 20,000 square metre warehouse space of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie includes two concert venues and it is one of the largest and most acoustically advanced concert halls in the world. The musical programme covers a wide range of music styles, from classical to contemporary tunes.
