fabulous venue for those enjoying classical music. The interior is absolutely gorgeous and way better than the Grand Théatre (let's see post works what the result will be). Sandwiched between place du Cirque and Place Neuve. A must see.

A stunning concert hall with excellent acoustics! We watched the opera La Forza des Destino there and really enjoyed the superb performances by the orchestra and the opera singers!

Absolutely life changing. Performing here was indeed life changing in the early stages of a successful career. Enjoy every performance remotely catchable. A must on your list when in Geneva.

If you are in any way culturally inclined, you must go to a choral and/or orchestral performance in this hall. The acoustics are intoxicatingly good. I was quietly moved to tears by a performance of Mozart's Requiem and works by Brahms.

Some seats are good, many are terrible, eg at 90 degrees to the stage, behind columns or with a box of other people in the way... etc The place needs a massive overhaul of the seats. What a rip off.

I have attended several concerts and piano recitals at Victoria Hall. I love its architecture and truly enjoy the acoustics in the main hall. There is so much history in this beautiful place, I wish the walls could talk... This being said, I slipped down the stairs a couple of year ago and dislocated my knee (and broke a perfect... More

I traveled to Geneva when I was still in college and we were able to see a show at Victoria Hall over the two weeks we visited. The space is gorgeous and it was great to feel fancy for a night. I definitely recommend seeing a show if you can, because the inside of the hall has been maintained well.... More

This is a scrumptious, little jewel box of a hall and well worth the effort to attend a concert here. I went to Mozart's Requiem last night with an outstanding choir, good acoustics, dazzling interior. Suggest you don't try to buy tickets on their online website; no diagram of the hall and you have no idea of the seating arrangements...and... More

I visited Victoria Hall in order to attend a concert with Beethoven's symphony no 9 and I liked the place very much. It's a neoclassical style built music hall and theater with excellent acoustics. If you have the chance to attend a concert there, do not hesitate to go!

My choir had a concert there and it was really good. The acoustic was pretty good compared to other halls we have being in, well the look from the inside is just breath taking you have to see it. I also liked how you get free wifi so that's a plus.
