For music and architecture lovers

One of my favourite locations in town. Great atmosphere, building itself and organised events. We were there for Ludovico Einaudi instrumental concert - simply magical!

We've seen a few townhalls in our travels and this is probably not one of the most spectacular ones. The building looks dated from outside with very little happening outside the area. There are no cafes or food options either.

This concert hall is something special. It was a planetarium, you still feel the round shape of the building. But it is now an excellent concert hall, with superb concerts. We visited already several time and we love it.

Originally built as a planetarium in the 1920's, this building was converted to a music hall in the 70's. It is a stunning location, nothing like we ever seen before for a concert hall and I had the impression that the architect got some inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright. Seating inside the concert hall is excellent but unfortunately some air... More

This concert hall gives the right atmosphere for any classical piece. Watching the Orchestra of the Robert Schummann School was brilliant - I don't think any professional orchestra could have done a better job.

Great atmosphere, fantastic building, sitting in circle is something very special, good acoustic. Very good selection of concerts, sometimes acoustic sets of known jazz, pop, rock artists.

The last thing I expected was culture shock. I turned up to a conert starting at 11am on a Sunday morning expecting a very moderate crowd - but this is Dusseldorf where they do things their way. The hall was 90% full. I asked for a ticket at the back of the hall. 34 Euros. Wow! I have never paid... More

This music hall had very professional acoustic technicians, combined with a challenging architecture. It is absolutely worth listening to a concert at Tonhalle or, if you have the opportunity, to give a concert on this stage.

Even if there is no concert, a visit to the Tonhalle is more than worthwhile. The building is the former planetarium into which has been magicked the most superb concert hall: so atmospheric, with wonderful sound - and if you can hear the Dusseldorf Symphony Orchestra, so much the better. Booking on-line is expensive as there is a booking fee,... More
