It is finally done! It almost took 10 years to build the new sign of Hamburg: The Elbphilarmonie – and today is the big day of the opening! In a ceremonial act with a great light show and an opening concert the concert hall will be opened today.
The Elbphilharmonie is more than an impressive and modern concert hall. The 5-star hotel "The Westin Hamburg" with its 244 rooms, meeting facilities, restaurant and bar is located there as well.
Between the old warehouse and the new glass structure, a plaza of about 4.000 m² has been built at 37 meters high, which is open to the public and offering a spectacular view of the city and the harbor.
As visitors stroll through Vienna's city center, the wonderful historic buildings will be admired, the many city palaces that once were built by the aristocracy, and whose splendor still lends the city a historic glow.
One of those palaces is the famous Palais Ferstel which offers the possibility to experience the atmosphere of a Viennese palace for a spectacular event in Vienna.
The Palais Ferstel was originally designed as a bank building and offers today the perfect setting for all types of events, such as award ceremonies, product presentations or conferences.
Summer in the Alps is magnificent. Winter is fantastic. Snow-capped mountains as far as the eye can see. A perfect ski slope system that offers all the possibilities of alpine skiing to everyone from beginners to advanced skiers. Countless winter activities in addition to the slopes to enjoy. But how to combine these leisure activities with work? How to manage to get nice rooms at a good price from Thursday to Sunday? When St. Anton, Ischgl and Saalbach-Hinterglemm are either not available for weekend breaks or very expensive, Innsbruck is the alternative.
Innsbruck, the capital of the Alps in Tyrol, is easy accessible by direct flights from European cities and has a good motorway connection from Munich.
