Andermatt Concert Hall Cultural centre of the Alps
The Andermatt Concert Hall has turned the Andermatt destination into a centre for culture with international allure. Specifically designed for a year-round destination in the mountains, the Concert Hall offers space for concerts from classical to rock, events like film festivals and
conferences, as well as private functions.
World class.For culture of the highest order
The Andermatt Concert Hall was inaugurated in 2019 and exemplifies cultural enjoyment in every respect. The building is more than just an architectural and acoustic masterpiece; it is also the first concert building in an Alpine destination and Switzerland's highest situated concert hall. Since 2022 the Andermatt Concert Hall has had its own house orchestra – the Swiss Orchestra.
Large stage.For intense emotions
The Andermatt Concert Hall provides seating for up to 650 people. But that doesn't mean that so many seats always need to be occupied. Just the opposite: Owing to its flexible interior design, the Concert Hall is also well suited for more intimate functions, like conferences, exhibitions, banquets, and weddings. The building is even accessible by car and equipped with state-of-the-art conference technology. Intense emotions are guaranteed.

Andermatt Music.Alpine musical pleasure
Andermatt Music is the concert promoter of the Gotthard region. It stands for high-quality musical enjoyment and covers the entire spectrum – from stars of classical music with international charisma to Swiss acts to innovative Central Switzerland combos with local roots.
The architecture.Close to the stars
The Andermatt Concert Hall was designed by Studio Seilern Architects under the direction of Christina Seilern. Because it was decided not to have an elevated stage, the audience is seated closer to the artists and stars than anywhere else. A key feature of the state-of-the-art auditorium is its great flexibility: up to nine rows of seats can be stored away under the main balcony.
The acoustics. For every tone
Kahle Acoustics and Ducks Scéno were responsible for the acoustics and the auditorium design. Every facet of the origami-inspired wood cladding has been acoustically optimised; an electronic reverberation system makes it possible to adapt the acoustics for different music styles, ensembles and audience sizes.
Awards.Distinguished concert architecture
In 2022 the Andermatt Concert Hall won the Architizer A+Award in the category “Cultural: Hall / Theater”. The award honours the best architecture of the year in a number of categories. In addition, the Concert Hall received the Special Award for Reuse & Adaptation at the 2023 Civic Trust Awards.
