Visit the Elbphilharmonie Plaza with your guide, with some exciting background about this spectacular building to accompany you along the way. Hear about the building’s original plans, plus its construction, completion challenges, and special features.

      We were traveling as a group of 15 people. Our guide provided us with detailed information about the planning and construction and of course the necessary costs. Well, we found that this information was given away from the Elphi and thus the crowd. Therefore, everything was understandable and also inquiries were possible and were readily answered by the guide. The subsequent tour of the Elbphilharmonie and along the Plaza gave us a unique view. We recommend this tour!

      Interessant og informativ rundvisning i Elbphilharmonie.

      Tirsdag den 21. aug. kl. 10 til godt 11 fik fire danskere en meget interessant rundvisning i Elbphilharmonie. Vores unge guide, desværre har jeg glemt navnet, gav en god fortælling om etablereingen af den spændende bygning, og de mange problemer, som havde været undervejs. Dejligt at høre, at det ikke kun er i Danmark at projekter bliver meget dyrere end beregnet. Vi giver vores bedste anbefalinger for at andre også kan få en god oplevelse.
