Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

The Elbphilharmonie is the new landmark of the metropolis on the waterfront. With the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg forges its path as a port city and a city of music, once again demonstrating that the city is shaping its future based on contrast. Located in the HafenCity Hamburg district the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg is emerging as a new magnet for locals and guests alike. The spectacular building contains three concert halls with a diverse music programme, a comprehensive music education programme, a hotel, as well as the Plaza — a public viewing platform at a height of 37 metres that offers visitors an amazing view of the city. If you are a modern architecture nerd, you simply must take the extremely popular guided tour that tells you all about the building's construction and history.

Elbphilharmonie Plaza

Elbphilharmonie Plaza

The Plaza is the central meeting place in the Elbphilharmonie and forms the link between the warehouse and the new structure. The viewing platform here is open to the public. Even getting to it is an experience: an 80-metre-long, slightly curved escalator transports visitors through the building. From the Plaza, 37 metres above the ground, a stunning panoramic view over the city and port opens up before the viewer. An outside walkway leads around the entire building.

Hamburg City Hall

Hamburg City Hall

Unusually lavish for Hanseatic taste: built in 1886–1897, the splendid sandstone edifice in Neo-Renaissance style dominates the city centre. Hamburg town hall is the seat of the city’s Senate (state government) and Bürgerschaft (parliament). The building has more rooms than Buckingham Palace — 647 rooms in total. The town hall can only be viewed on guided tours. Also worth seeing is the fountain of Hamburg’s patron goddess Harmonia in the town hall’s courtyard.

Speicherstadt (Historic Warehouse Complex)

Speicherstadt (Historic Warehouse Complex)

Over a century old, the Speicherstadt in the port is the world’s largest integrated complex of warehouses. Here, guests to Hamburg find an idyllic scenery of redbrick Gothic architecture from the Wilhelmine era with bizarre little gables and towers. Valuable goods are stored at controlled temperatures behind their massive walls: coffee, tea, cocoa, spices, tobacco — and the world’s largest stock of Oriental carpets. Since 2015 the Speicherstadt, the Chilehaus and the Kontorhausviertel belong to the UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you're short on time or want to give your feel some rest after exploring the city, take a one-hour evening boat tour. Speicherstadt looks especially magical at sunset.

The Old Elbe Tunnel

The Old Elbe Tunnel

When the Old Elbe Tunnel, also called "St. Pauli Elbe Tunnel", was opened in 1911, it was a technical sensation. Today, it is a nostalgic and lovingly tended piece of Hamburg history. The distinctive, square, domed structure on the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken houses the machinery and the four lifts, which have transported people and vehicles at a depth of nearly 24 metres for over 100 years. After 426.5 metres beneath the Elbe and through the two tiled tunnels with a diameter of 6 metres, you return to daylight in Steinwerder and can enjoy a wonderful view over the harbour.

You can also take a guided tour that shows Wunderland behind-the-scenes to better appreciate how much technical wizardry and planning is involved in running this place.

The Reeperbahn

The Reeperbahn

The Reeperbahn is a living legend: in the old days it was a seedy red-light quarter for seafarers; during the 1960s it was a stepping stone for the Beatles. Since the 1990s the red-light district has been gradually transformed into a unique entertainment district with bars and clubs, art galleries, cabarets, theatres and top-class restaurants. If you want your night out to come with a side of history, go for an intimate nighttime tour. You'll get some fun facts and tips from the locals, as well as a beer and a shot.

BallinStadt — Emigrant Museum Hamburg

BallinStadt — Emigrant Museum Hamburg

It’s a fascinating story — the tale of BallinStadt, the “Emigration City” — where millions of people found safe harbour before beginning their journey to the New World in pursuit of a better life. The museum documents the great European migration to America that took place from 1850 to 1934. Here you can explore the varied emigration stations over the centuries. In 14 themed rooms the museum tells the stories of emigration to the new world over 4 eras.
