Opened in early 2017 and costing nearly $1 billion, this concert hall is a contemporary marvel and the city’s top attraction. Its design (by renowned architect duo Herzog and de Meuron) is almost a metaphor for the city’s mix of old and new: the brick base, formerly one of Hamburg’s port warehouses, is capped by a mirrored, sail-shaped roof, harkening to Hamburg’s maritime significance. Inside is a restaurant, shop, hotel and two concert halls. The main concert hall was designed for acoustic maximization and is an extraordinary space with high-tech design elements.
