Elbphilharmonie Hamburg – A major city attraction on Germany’s coast

In the flow of the Elbe and surrounded on three sides by water, the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg is a centre of attraction for visitors from all over the world. Artistic quality, variety and accessibility shape the musical programme of Hamburg’s cultural landmark. Perched on top of a brick warehouse foundation which was built at the port between 1963 and 1966 and then used for storing tea, tobacco and cocoa, the glass structure with its wave-like top rises up 110 metres high into the sky.
