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 of just the right size and proportion. And the beauty of the performance space (not... 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.

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 there because of a specific question. People didn't know much about the organization while the... 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 beautifully in every corner.

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 would rather have had some uneducated souls clap in the wrong place than that cacophony... More

Zurich was our fifth destination in our Euro-trip on first week in June. One of the best place to rest and enjoy breathtaking view in Zurich... Recommended....

Zurich is a fun and culturally very interesting place. If you happen to go for a concert at Tonhalle, be there early. The panorama over the Lake is worth a stroll along the boardwalk. Once you get into the building you better opt for great music, because the building itself, infrastructure (such as light) and seating is not really world... 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.

This is Zurich Tradition, Zurich always attracted excellent artists even tough it is a very small city - a mere 370'000 inhabitants not including the agglomeration. David Zinman has brought the Tonhalle once again to top internationals standards and nowadays with the hassle Switzerland and especially our baks have to go trough wit he US Revenue System he remains perhaps...
