We booked a tour and were happy to have done so. Be aware that the tour office is on the other side of the street. This gives you in 75 minutes views of the inside i'of the two big concert halls and some explanations about...More
The tour was conducted in German and the guide was very knowledgeable and as a first view of the Elbphi it was most interesting. However, the guide didn't really enthuse and make the place come alive; it all felt rather flat which is a shame...More
Visited last week during day time.
Easy to access, free ticket to the Plaza and experiencing the longest elevator for 6 floors in 2.5 minutes! Impressive.
A must visit spot when in hamburg as you can able to see the city in 360 degrees.
From the inside, the structure is even more impressive. The escalators are among the longest I’ve been on, and evoke a great sense of anticipation. The views from the plaza are breathtaking.
Imaginative programming as well: I was glad to attend an all Russian piano...More

One can get free tickets to ride one of the longest...More
Amazing design!! Detailed and beauty go hand in hand. Love their designs on glass panel to be used according to the season. But it’s expensive for a visit and the escalators were a bit too confusing. Location was passable.

Trip update: I was able to get tickets to the sold out Kammermusikfest concert by showing up at the ticket office 90 minutes before the concert. All I had to do was to wait in line for less than 20 minutes. And it was well worth the extra effort as the beauty and acoustic of the Grosser Saal was simply stunning.
I also attended a different concert at the Kleiner Saal on the same day and it was equally fantastic too. The shoebox style hall, while not as grand as the Grand Hall, was more intimate and the acoustic was very responsive. I had a very engaging experience at the well named Recital Hall.
