Känslan som julafton när man går nedför den långa backen med utsikt över hela kalkbrottet. Atmosfären och akustiken är världsklass. more »Feeling like Christmas Eve when going down the long Hill with views over the limestone pit. The atmosphere and acoustics are world class.
Couldn't enter so it was hard to see what all fuss is about.
Really amazing place!, the only thing I didn't like were the seats. I hope they will get replaced ;)
The feel of this place is just amazing. In the middle of nowhere you find this place? Just amazing. This might be crossed of my bucket list, but I'm surely come to this place many more times!
Fantastiskt ställe för konsert och opera!
Barbro JonesWas at Dalhalla concert of Mando D! Volume was terribly high and when they talked not heard what they said. We sat on the 41st series. Why do you have to shout out everything said from the stage? A big disappointment was already in the entre ' n then not even had to take an empty water bottle, plastic that you want to keep because it's useful for me. One last påpekning, ensure that the toilet rolls to the bathroom is open and pulled out from the tank when deployed there! Doesn't feel good to visit Dalhalla again!
