Engel & Völkers has sold the most expensive freehold apartment ever recorded in Hamburg, at a sale price in excess of 10 million euros. The property is the approx. 400 square metre show apartment in the Elbphilharmonie. It is situated on the 18th floor of Hamburg’s new landmark building and features exclusive finishes and amenities.
Its rooms have been furnished by the renowned British interior designer Kate Hume. The new owner of the apartment is from southern Germany and acquired the residence complete with all its high-end furnishings. The 270° panoramic views over Hamburg’s cityscape, the river Elbe and the port were key factors in the decision to buy.

There are a total of 45 apartments in the Elbphilharmonie, situated on the 11th to the 26th floors. “We have already brokered 90 percent of the apartments,” said Philip Bonhoeffer, Managing Partner of E+V Hamburg Immobilien GmbH, explaining the high level of demand as follows: “The prospect of living in an architecturally unique and symbolic landmark makes the apartments in the Elbphilharmonie something very special indeed. Their individual floor plans and outlooks also make each apartment unique in itself.” The freehold apartments in the Elbphilharmonie were developed in a joint venture between Quantum Immobilien AG and Hochtief Infrastructure GmbH. The properties are being brokered exclusively through Engel & Völkers.
