Dart past the queues and get in quick to the Elbphilharmonie. This huge, modern concert building in Hamburg towers over the Elbe River and reflects the water in its unique, iceberg-shaped architecture. Skip the line, meet your guide, and explore one of the largest and most acoustically-advanced concert venues in the world! Special outdoor terrace access is included.

On any given day, the Elbphilharmonie echoes with the sound of music. It's home to three concert halls, the biggest of which can host over 2,000 people.

Find out the Elbphilharmonie's history and role in Hamburg society. It's so well loved, it even has a nickname - Elphi. Hear about the events held inside Elphi, learn about her special features, and then head up for some stunning vistas.

With special access to the outdoor plaza on the 8th floor, soak up the impressive views of the Port of Hamburg and its bustling workers from above.

See the landing bridges, the Michel and the HafenCity, and with a bit of luck, you might even spot one of the giant cruise liners or container ships gliding into Hamburg.
