Elbphilharmonie – Hamburg’s new landmark

The Elbphilharmonie was built at a historically significant location: in Sandtorhafen. The largest warehouse in the Port of Hamburg at the time, the Kaiserspeicher, was built here in 1875. Cocoa, tobacco and tea were stored here until the 1990s. In contrast to the Big Hall, the Small Hall follows the classic concept of the “shoe box”. Here, elegantly milled wooden paneling ensures the perfect sound. Both the Big Hall and the Small Hall of the Elbphilharmonie are acoustically autonomous spaces that are completely decoupled from the rest of the building. Huge steel spring packages isolate the concrete shell of the hall from the outside. Not a single ship’s horn can penetrate inside, no trombone choir, however powerful, can be heard outside.

St. Johannis-Harvestehude – Church in the heart of Hamburg

The Protestant-Lutheran St. Johannis Church in Hamburg-Harvestehude was built in 1880-1882 in the neo-Gothic style. Its architecture and artistic furnishings are largely original. The church is therefore one of Hamburg’s most impressive monuments of the late 19th century and is also highly regarded outside the city.
The first church council selected the design by architect Wilhelm Hauer from seven proposals for implementation. The architect designed the church entirely in the spirit of the “Eisenach Regulations”, a set of rules for the design of Protestant churches. The result: an almost complete composition of neo-Gothic artistic feeling, also visible in details such as pews, lecterns, organ prospectus, terrazzo flooring and ceiling paintings.

Forum of the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg

The Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg was founded in 1950 from the private drama school of Annemarie Marks-Rocke and Eduard Marks, with the German composer Philipp Jarnach as its first director. Initially housed decentrally, it found a home in the Budge-Palais on the Außenalster in 1956. The university’s Forum is an important component, a fully functional theater with an orchestra pit and approximately 450 seats, which hosts concerts as well as music theater and drama productions.
