I was there just once. I really enjoyed my stay there, the atmosphere is very good, the staff nice. Only thing that wasn't really well organized is the competence of the people working backstage. For an event while the ZFF Zurich Film Festival I called...More

Zurich's Tonhalle, situated close to the lake, hosts many great classical soloists and orchestras. It's a great place to listen to music, with exceptional acoustic and a nice atmosphere.

Regarding acustics (and program) one of the leading concert halls of Europe. Great performances with renowned solist or young talents, the latter often at affordable prices. It does not matter if you chose a cheaper ticket, if you're interested in listening only, the sound carries...More

A truly wonderful concert by the renowned recorder player Dorothee Oberlinger and Dmitriy Sinkovsky with the Ensemble 1700. Terrific music. Unfortunately, the audience, which was very good at not clapping at the wrong moments, was atrocious at COUGHING between every piece, movement, etc! Disgraceful! I...More

I just saw a review which said that the acoustics were poor. Jeez, no! I played myself there in a concert in an orchestra and it has to be said that it's one of the halls with the most awesome acoustics.

I can't say I liked it. The orchestra was not great, and the accoustics were poor. I got the student seats, which means that I was literally sitting outside of the room where the orchestra was playing, and I left two thirds in.

This is a classical concert hall which shows some signs of age. Ensure you factor in enough time to get there if you have never visited the Tonhalle before. Nerest tram stop is 'Stockerstrasse', then walk toward the Hyatt Hotel in the direction of the...More
