Bike Touring Highlight
The architectural flagship and flagship of Hafencity is the Elbphilharmonie. In the boldness of his design, the building was compared to the Sydney Opera House. The core of the building is the brick cube of an old warehouse. On the cube was placed a wave-shaped construction of glass and steel, which rises at the highest point to 110 meters. This makes the Elbphilharmonie the tallest inhabited building in the city. But not only the architecture is groundbreaking, the two concert halls are also the best in the world. At first the hamburgers were very enthusiastic about the mammoth project. But after the ground-breaking ceremony in 2007, the initial euphoria became very skeptical. This was due in particular to the enormous increase in construction costs and the permanent postponement of completion. The Elbphilharmonie was finally opened on 11 January 2017 and quickly became Hamburg's new landmark.
