Everybody knows the Elbphilharmonie, everybody loves it, and everybody wants to visit it. Tourists as well as Hamburg residents.
There were many critical voices during the construction because the costs for this building have increased again and again. People said that the money could be spent on more useful things and that the new concert hall would only be built for the rich and beautiful ones anyway. With the opening of the Elbphilharmonie, all these voices have fallen silent.
I like this concert hall very much. However, these colorful panorama photos, that you can find in the web, do not do her justice. Because it's not quartz crystal placed on an old warehouse. It’s a crystal, that grew out of the river Elbe mud.
