Construction project

The Zurich Convention Center and the Tonhalle are set to re-open their doors in March 2021, following a complete renovation and conversion spanning over three years. The overall renovation project includes conversion measures that will make the ensemble of buildings more accessible, improve the layout and make the usable space more versatile. The entire building complex is being comprehensively renovated and equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

The Panoramasaal (panorama room), a later addition to the complex, is to be demolished. A new wing with garden rooms (Gartensäle) will be built on the General-Guisan-Quai side, while a panorama restaurant will be constructed on the terrace level, ensuring that the Kongresssaal (congress hall) and the Konzertfoyer (concert foyer) keep their unrivalled panoramic views of the lake and the Alps.
 
The highlights of the new Zurich Convention Center:
  • New lakeside wing of garden rooms (Gartensäle) that can be partitioned as required, including a spacious foyer
  • Additional Seezimmer (lake rooms) with access to the garden enhance the range of rooms on offer
  • The renovated Kongressvestibül (convention vestibule) between Claridenstrasse and Beethovenstrasse now has entrances on both sides of the building complex and is accessible from all sides
  • The Kongressfoyer (convention foyer) offers unforgettable views of the spacious new terrace and beyond to the lake and the Swiss Alps
  • The new panorama restaurant with its large terrace, bar and lounge area is a magnet for event participants, concert-goers, tourists and local residents
  • All rooms are equipped with the latest technology and are digitally interconnected
