The Elbphilharmonie Revisited

Some may remember my series of photos from Hamburg last year, including some which featured the new, modern concert hall, the Elbphilharmonie. Today I revisited the building (and this summer it is also possible to take a tour inside). The location and the surrounding building don’t make it a very easy job to take pictures of the large building, whose modern part is built on top of some old warehouses. However, I do think I found a POV I missed last year with this photo.

The Elbphilharmonie (The Elbe Philharmonic Hall) opened in in January 2017. It is located at the tip of a peninsula in the river Elbe and in the district of HafenCity. Nicknamed Elphi, the large glass structure of the concert hall, resembling a ship, waves, or an iceberg, was built on top of a warehouse (Kaispeicher A) from 1963 and designed by architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron. There’s an observation deck at the 8th floor.
