For your own security, do not buy tickets from unauthorized dealers! Regular tickets for the Philharmonic Concerts are usually priced between € 12.00 and 98.00. There are several third parties on the internet offering tickets to our concerts at the Elbphilharmonie which are vastly overpriced, often priced at several hundred Euros. We strongly discourage you from buying such tickets, as these are illegal commercial resales. Without prior consent of the State Orchestra, tickets may not be resold for commercial purposes. Private resales at increased prices are also prohibited. In such cases, the State Orchestra reserves the right to cancel such tickets and to exclude those responsible from purchasing further tickets in the future.
