A referendum in Zurich yesterday approved the refurbishment of the gloomy Tonhalle concert hall, with its adjacent congress centre, at a cost of $250 million.

The Yes vote commanded 75 percent.

Here’s what they’ll get:



  • DESR says:

    God, Switzerland is a marvellous country.

    A popular vote to build a new concert hall.

    All one needs to know or say really.

    • Nicholas Riddle says:

      Actually, it’s not a new concert hall. It’s a reworking of an existing establishment, but still very good news.

  • Chengis K says:

    What ? No vote for Basic Income Plan. And Yes vote for concert hall? Who do they thing are gonna play at the concert hall?

    Cheers & I was just kidding 🙂
