Event Hall

With the covered public area outside it – the City Lounge – this hall makes an excellent impression before you even set foot in it. And once you have made your way into the hall, designed by star architects Herzog & de Meuron, it exudes a modern, almost urban look. With its multifunctional facilities, it can accommodate all kinds of events and is especially suited to plenary sessions, concerts, banquets, exhibitions and sports events.
