#1 of 8 in Things to do in Rattvik
Dalhalla is an amphitheatre located in a former limestone quarry, and is used as a summer music venue. It is located 7 km north of Lake Siljan and the town of Rättvik in Dalecarlia in central Sweden.

The quarry is 60 metres deep, 400 metres long and 175 metres wide. The open air theater was opened in 1995 and currently has 4000 seats. The acoustical qualities are comparable to the best outdoor stages in Europe.

Dalhalla presents 20-30 events each summer, from June to the beginning of September with a combination of opera, choral works, and jazz and popular concerts making up the balance of the program. In 2005, guest performers came from the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, and Mikis Theodorakis celebrated his 80th birthday. On June 30 2007 English rock group Procol Harum performed with the Gävle Symphony Orchestra and the Dala Sinfonietta Choir, conducted by David Firman.

In the immediate area, the Jussi Björling Museum is located.

    What a cool place! It was such a great feeling to sit there, had probably worked just as well without a performer on stage too. Good bar and service, toilets.

    Dalhalla must be a place that many artists like to play on, with its unique location and design. I am sure this arena has a better sound than when I was at Emmalou Harris, who had their own techniques. My experience was not the best, but despite what happened this time so I am sure that, as a rule, have a great sound.

  • One of the best places I've ever seen. Amazing accoustics and light show. Been here on a Europe concert. One of the best days of my life.
  • Great experience. Beautiful place.
  • Really amazing place!, the only thing I didn't like were the seats. I hope they will get replaced ;)
  • Couldn't enter so it was hard to see what all fuss is about.
  • 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!
