We travelled from the UK to see Gregory Porter, it was a lovely little venue that has great acoustics. It felt very intimate & made the gig very special. We were seated in the gallery but didn't have the best view due to a few...More

We came for a concert to this famous, well renowned building. All service personnel was very friendly and helpful. The acoustic was great and we have been told that a big renovation is due - understandable if you see the outdated interior.

Every time visiting of Tonhalle gives a lot of wonderful emotions to enjoy the music. Especially when some foreign musicians play. Acoustic is great. The only what's a bit expensive is contain of buffet. Besides the variety of food is very little.

We went to Tonhalle for a Beethoven concert. Although it was built in 1895, the Tonhalle acoustics were good. There are several columns which could obstruct your view of the orchestra if you are seated in the balcony. But attending a concert there is worthwhile,...More

Tonhalle/Kongresshaus is a concert/event venue in Zürich. It has space for up to 1700 people, a beautiful atmosphere and acoustic. Tonhalle Orchestra plays classical music and there are many events of different genre, both played here and at the Kongresshaus.

I stopped here to see the orchestra play and was amazed at the decor. A more traditional take on an orchestra hall. There were plenty of seats open and we were able to shuffle a little closer to the stage so we could see them...More

I've been there several times for orchestral performances. And every time I think what a wonderful concert hall this is. It's small enough that the music can be presented without electronic amplification! That is rare compared to this age of immense halls. An acoustic box...More

Now I understand acoustics. This place is stunning, both for gazing and for hearing. If you're a classical music fan and you're in Zurich, this is really a must. Can't speak too highly of it.
