'Konserthuset' (House of concerts) is the home stage of GSO, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. Its located at 'Götaplatsen' together with the city theatre and two art museums. Not much of the ouside but the larger of the two concert rooms has one of the world's best concert acoustics. The orchestra is by many regarded one of the finest in Scandinavia.... More

The architecture may be a bit massive but the sound quality fully deserves its reputation. The fruity, intense quality of the Göteborgs symfoniker sound is really enhanced with the perfect balance of warmth and accuracy. You can treat yourself with carrot cakes and coffee during intermissions.

We were 17 people having three course dinner before the concert. I must admit I was positively surprised how good food they have and how nice atmosphere in restaurant is. I expected average food and typical "must have a restaurant in concert house" atmosphere but we were served fine dining food by professionals in intimate atmosphere. On top of that... More

The place was very well organized and it was classic and beautiful. They also served drinks and snacks outside which was a good idea. If you found your performer having any shows while your in Gothenburg, do not hesitate to go to this place.

Not only the sculpture outside, but the hall is beautiful as well. A must see. The walk there is picturesque, lots of places to eat and drink nearby.

To hear the wonderful Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra here is a great experience: the acoustic is near perfect. The hall is entirely lined with light-coloured wood and so is easy on the eys as it is on the ears. If the orchestra is playing, don't miss a chance to visit!

This orchestra is regularly rated among the best in Europe and it deserves to so be. Ever since Volvo started to sponsor it (many years back) it has climbed i quality. It is strange that such a small town with half a million people can enjoy classical music at the level performed here and that it is sustainable. They have... More

Nuff said! The orchestra is absolutely amazing. You have to experience it to believe it!
