This guided tour combines two of the best things one can do in Hamburg: visit the Elbphilharmonie and eat a Franzbrötchen. Learn more about Hamburg’s iconic landmark, take in splendid views from the Plaza and enjoy a delicious Franzbrötchen (typical pastry of Hamburg; similar to a cinnamon bun) and cup of coffee afterwards.
The tour starts at the metro station Baumwall, from where you can get a lovely first glance of the Elbphilharmonie. Upon entering the architectural masterpiece, an impressive, futuristic moving stairway will carry you up to the viewing platform, the Plaza. A good-humored tour guide will explain the pros and cons of the concert hall that was finally opened in 2017. Why were there so many construction delays? What makes the acoustic in the concert halls so special? And what significance does the “Elphi” have for Hamburg nowadays? Your tour guide will give you all the answers to these and many other questions and will provide interesting background information about the construction costs and special materials required for the construction of the concert hall. By the end of the tour, you'll be a true expert!
Take in fantastic panoramic views over harbor and city from the unique Plaza of the Elbphilharmonie. Afterwards, you can enjoy a traditional Franzbrötchen with a cup of coffee at the Störtebeker restaurant. Would you like to enjoy the unique atmosphere of the viewing platform a bit longer? No problem – you can spend the rest of the day up here.
