This is an ultra modern Congress Centre which was built from 1995 to about 2000. It was first opened in 1998 with a performance by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. It is a multi-functional building designed by Jean Nouvel and is reputed to have the finest acoustics of any such building in Switzerland. Probably best seen from the River the Centre can be found very easily as it is right on the River Reuss almost adjoing the Hauptbahnhof. It is a favourite spot for outside dining as it affords the most wonderful views of the City, the River and Kappelbruecke etc.

Address: On the River Reuss
Directions: Not far from the Hauptbahnhof

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
