Construction work on the renovation of the Kongresshaus and Tonhalle continues. However, the corona-related protective measures are delaying construction progress. The opening date of the Kongresshaus and Tonhalle will be postponed from March to September 2021 due to the increased deadline risk.

In addition Ilona Schmiel, Executive and Artistic Director

We fully support the postponement!
However, for us this means that we have to replan the second half of the season, because the concert hall of the Tonhalle Maag offers different conditions than the halls of the Tonhalle am See. This not only because of the number of seats, but also for the artists whom we had invited to open the newly renovated building with us in the second half of the season. This is yet another extreme situation for us as well as for all other concert organizers in the city. We will do everything we can to master this new postponement in a positive way for us and our customers.
