I found this building while exploring Hamburg. It is located near Johannes Brahms Platz. I liked the ornamentation located around the structure.

We went to the Glen Miller Orchestra. The place was really chique and stylish, but nevertheless had many disappointing issues. First of all, the toilets are not stylish at all! Secondly, why pay for garderobe, when you already pay so much for your ticket? The break is way too short to enjoy your drink, or there are too little possibilities... More

This is a classic landmark building on a big square next to a beautiful park. It is used for many classical and some jazz and pop concerts. The front door leads to the large hall (grosser sail) with an impressive interior and a super bar. The stage is big enough for a symphony orchestra and there is a nice pipe... More

Good thing they are building a new symphony hall in Hamburg. Attended a concert this evening and could not see the pianist (soloist) OR the conductor! Moved to some empty seats in another section after the concert started and were shocked we still couldn't see. Then, I noticed that around the hall people were standing to see the soloist. Although... More

We have been in the 'Laeiszhalle' (name from a very old Hamburg family) at a concert from 'Annett Louisan'. Annett is famous Hamburg singer. We had a place at '2.Rang Balkon left' row 3 place 13, 14 (price 42€...). The ticket says 'sichtbehindert' this means 'a little bit problems to see the stage' in my opinion... But we see nothing...

With good acoustics and an enticing programme of concerts spread throughout the year, the concert hall is readily reached on foot or by metro from the main Hamburg hotels. Given the number of orchestras and organisations using the hall, you might find that you can buy tickets online but have to collect them from the opera house ten minutes away... More

been there many times, in the main hall or the smaller ones. A beautiful building and sounds are good for concerts. Parking is available on the other side of the road and they are free in the evening :)
