What to do in Geneva | Famous concerts in Victoria Hall

Victoria Hall

Nobody would ever think that the unnamed square building, that is almost like a cube or a huge box can hide your inner soul warm, full of liberty style. It was brought to life in 2006, after the fire which severely damaged the original décor. We are in Geneva, and the “box” is Victoria Hall.

Victoria Hall is a concert hall, which is located in the city center. Built between 1891 and 1894, and designed by the Italian architect Giovanni Camoletti, was wanted by the consul of England in Switzerland, which he dedicated to Queen Victoria and gave it to the city of Geneva.

Currently, Victoria Hall is mostly used mainly for classical music performances (though the bill there are also jazz events and ethnic music), and even if someone complains about the rigidity of the chairs (which seem not quite comfortable) nobody complains about them.

Don’t  not miss the “Fete de la Musique”, which takes place in June; there is a free admission (but you must arrive on time, of course).
