Re: Hamburg concert hall: Overdue, Over Budget, Finished

DrFumblefinger ·
Nothing like inept bureaucrats to run up the budget....Imagine, €300 for a toilet brush! I'm sure an adequate brush could have been purchased for €3. And that's just one example. Beautiful building, but at a cost of nearly $US 1 billion, it does seem a bit pricey.

The German government were offering Hamburg as a suitable venue for the Olympic Games. The good people of Hamburg have said they no longer trust developers and politicians. No thank you. I find the new Concert Hall to be a monster on stilts. Not a pleasant view from any angle.

It's a great summary of a fun place to visit. Besides the amphitheater, there's a drive through the park which takes you by other red rock formations. The park isn't that large, but it is memorable. If you're looking for a place to eat, the amphitheater offers an outdoor terrace restaurant with great views of the Red Rock.

Thanks for your feedback Mytraveledroad and DrFumblefinger. I hope to one day see a concert at this venue. I had a blast just exploring the empty amphitheater, I can only imagine what a thrill it would be to actually see a concert there.

Thanks for a great piece on a great amphitheater! A really cool restaurant is very close ,The Fort, and I'd highly recommend it if you see Red Rocks again. In the 90's , President Clinton took the G-8 summit up to have dinner there. http://thefort.com/the-history-of-the-fort/
