The Neue Festhalle – a generation project for Bern.
The Festhalle on the BERNEXPO site, originally constructed as a temporary solution some 67 years ago, has reached the end of its life cycle. BERNEXPO has therefore decided to replace it with the Neue Festhalle. This closes a large gap in the market: the capital city is currently unable to offer events, exhibitions or worlds of experiences for a capacity of up to 8,500 people. The new building will make it possible for cultural events, shows, sports events, art exhibitions, musicals, television programmes, conferences and other conventions to be held.
