Forbidden City Concert Hall

Classical Music in Forbidden City & Dongcheng Central

Considered one of the city's best venues for acoustics, the Forbidden City Concert Hall is the modern successor to an open-air stage built inside regal Zhongshan Park by the Japanese in 1942. It's a wonderfully romantic spot to savour a first-rate performance of classical or Chinese music, and you can often find seats for under ¥100.
