Around 12,000 people flock to HafenCity every day to see Hamburg’s spectacular Elbphilharmonie, the view of the harbour and the Speicherstadt. Over 26,000 guests visited during the weekend after the opening of the Elbphilharmonie Plaza in November 2016.
Over 1 million visitors to Elbphilharmonie Plaza
The concert-hall is now a must-see attraction for visitors from all over the world and not just for the people of Hamburg. Smartphones and cameras are being clicked as soon as fans reach the 80 metre-long escalator, the Tube, leading to the top of the former Kaispeicher. Commenting on the popularity, Christoph Lieben-Seutter, General Director of the Elbphilharmonie, noted: “The unabated, brisk flow of visitors even on cold days confirms the huge appeal of the Elbphilharmonie’s architecture and that of the site.”
