Uppsala Concert and Congress
Despite being a relatively new attraction compared to the historical Castle and Cathedral, Uppsala Concert and Congress has become one of the city’s most iconic buildings. This exciting venue hosts a variety of musicians and music styles from all over the world. In addition to hosting concerts, the building is purpose made for conferences, meeting events and much more.
Music and eventsOpened in September 2007, Uppsala Concert and Congress has since then become one of Sweden’s premier concert venues. Often referred to as Musikens Hus (music house), it attracts many international musicians and major musical events.
Its majestic Main Hall seats up to 1,140 guests, while Hall B seats 340 and Hall C 120 guests. Hall D is used for a variety of purposes, including banquets, exhibitions and is also home to a café. The venue also has large and small conference rooms, so it is as popular with business travelers as well as tourists. The venue's downtown location means the concert hall offers a spectacular, 360-degree view of Uppsala, another reason as to why it is so popular.
A structure to admireWhen walking around the city, the huge rectangle windows and uneven walls are sure to catch your attention. So if looking to enjoy a spot to eat or host an event in style, this is the perfect place. The architecture is particularly distinctive, so even visitors who do not have tickets for events at the concert hall will enjoy taking a look around.
Whether you are a music fan or corporate traveler, you can enjoy spacious rooms and modern amenities at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Uppsala. In addition to the events venue, the hotel is located near many attractions, including Uppsala Theater.
