About the “Elbphilharmonie”

www.mediaserver.hamburg.de  Michael RathmayrThe Elbphilharmonie was planned with the aim of creating a new landmark of the city and a "cultural monument for everybody". The 110-meter high building on the right bank of the Norderelbe is located near the mouth of the Alster in the west of Hamburg's Hafencity district.

The Elbphilharmonie was founded in a historically significant place: in the Sandtorhafen. In 1875 the largest warehouse in the port of Hamburg was built, the Kaiserspeicher. Cocoa, tobacco and tea were stored here until the 90s.

On the base of the former Kaiserspeicher on the western tip of the Hafencity rises the glassy new building. It has two concert halls, a hotel and several apartments.
On the intersection between storage and new construction is a publicly accessible viewing platform at a height of 37 meters - the Plaza, which offers a unique panoramic view of the city and the harbour.
