Next to tickets for invited guests, there will be a limited stock on tickets for the general public from Hamburg, Germany and other countries.

Prof. Barbara Kisseler, Kultursenatorin of Hamburg: "The curiosity about the Elbphilharmonie is enormous. A house for everyone is raising right in the heart of the city. We want people from home and abroad to have the chance to take part at the opening concerts - not only invited guests."

These days director Christoph Lieben-Seutter and his team are compiling the program for 2017, which will bring the overwhelming sound of the big hall to life. "We will announce the whole program in April, tickets will be available from June onwards."

The Elbphilharmonie will be handed over to the city of Hamburg this fall and be opened to the public in November, when the plaza will open its doors; the public place between the historic and the new built part of the iconic building.

After completing the spectacular outside of the building, the interior fittings and the finalization of the so called "white skin" in the great hall are passing on to the final construction phase.

Jacques Herzog of Herzog & de Meuron is excited about the progress of the construction side: "One year before the opening, one can see which tremendous impact the Elbphilharmonie will have on Hamburg. We are very happy."
