Markthalle Altenrhein – An architectural project by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Gilded onion-shaped towers, glowing colours, sweeping lines, mis-matched windows, uneven floors, colourful ceramic & mosaic columns, shady covered walks and grassy roofs are the trademarks of the architecture of Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Just like many other well-known buildings in Europe and Japan, the ‘Markthalle’ in Altenrhein (near Rorschach) is an impressive example of the unusual architectural concepts of this internationally renowned artist. This is the only example of his buildings in Switzerland!

The Markthalle offers events, art shops, a gallery, a restaurant, as well as an exhibition space with changing exhibitions. The hall can be rented for various occasions. 300 seats Large cinema screen Loudspeakers Opening times April-October (daily) 10.00-17.30 Entrance fee November-March (Saturday and Sunday) 13.00-17.30 AdultsChildren Free Fr. 5.00 Euro 3.30Markthalle GmbH AltenrheinVerwaltung9423 Altenrhein 071 855 81 85
