Very well regenerated building, a curved escalator takes you to a 30m high walkway around the building. You need a ticket to enter bit it's free of charge (possibly bit on some days/times?)

Seeing the outside of the Elbphilharmonie from land and from the water on a mostly sunny day with sun and clouds bouncing off the glistening exterior is spectacular. Going inside to look around, however, is not worth it. The very, very long escalator takes you...More

A must visit if you are in Hamburg. A walk along the Panasonic 360 balcony in the middle of the building is breathtaking. An architectural marvel. Exceptionally amazing sound quality. Top notch international performances. Brilliant job done by the Hamburg authorities.

Even if you don't get one of the rare tickets to visit a concert or what else - visit one of the most exciting buildings I know. Free entrance, but start at 10 am in the morning, to get in without long waitingtime. Use the...More

Sorry, can't help. I didn't go to any performance, just had a look around the building. Impressive. There's a guided tour available but it was booked out during the days we were wanting to go there. Good luck!

No there is no dress code. Maybe don’t come in shorts and Hawaii shirt, but you need not be dressed up. There are many (older) visitors dressing up (and showing off), but no need to do the same.
