Hamburg’s brand-new concert hall rises impressively some 110 meters (361 feet) above the shiny HafenCity district. Designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, the distinctive building contains a Grand Hall for up to 2,100 guests, as well as a Recital Hall and a smaller studio venue for experimental music, lectures and workshops. In addition to hosting residencies by the likes of the NDR Symphony Orchestra, the Elbphilharmonie offers festivals, world-class performances and concerts that go beyond the classical realm.
