per traveler Price is $22

Explore the wonders of the Elbphilharmonie, one of the largest and most acoustically advanced concert halls in the world and Hamburg's newest landmark (concert hall itself is not visited). A friendly guide explains the history of its construction as you admire the building and spectacular views over the Elbe River.

Meet your guide at the Baumwall station and make your way to the Elbphilharmonie, perched on the Grasbrook peninsula of the Elbe River. Newly opened in January 2017, the concert hall features a distinct silhouette, its glassy exterior resembling a wave or hoisted sail. Your guide explains the history of the building's construction, which started in 2007 and was plagued with controversy due to cost overruns and delays.

Step into the building itself and learn of the incredible acoustics of the concert hall, which were designed by renowned acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota. Follow your guide up to the observation deck on the 8th floor's Plaza, where you can spend time admiring views of Hamburg and the Elbe River. After marveling at the vista and the unique architecture of the new city icon, bring your tour to an end.
