The Architect Nils Einar Eriksson, at the buildng site

A substantial donation of 700 000 kronor from Caroline Wijk became the starting point for a new concert hall, located at Götaplatsen, as the old building at Heden had burnt down in 1928.

A house with music in the center. A building open for all, with music at its centre, was the starting point for the architect Nils Einar Eriksson when he drew the plans for the Gothenburg Concert Hall.

With its stylistically pure functionalism and its beautiful natural materials, the architecture was ground-breaking when the building was inaugurated in 1935.

The Concert Hall
Concerts are performed in the Stora Salen concert room, a magnificent hall that is world-renowned for its excellent acoustics.
