If you take the elevator to the second floor of the building, you will be welcomed by West Electric and Klangfilm cinema speakers, a few of the most famous vintage speaker systems. You have to pay an entrance fee of 20,000KRW and then the receptionist will give you a bottle of water. But that’s it. No food or drink is allowed in this concert hall. There’s no desk, no chairs facing each other. All the structures are designed for people to concentrate on music.

2. It plays classical music and jazz

The music hall has more than 10,000 vinyls and 2,000 turntables, and rare phonographs and vinyl records. They mainly play classical and jazz, sometimes with a video on the wall. They put efforts into selecting the music by changing the vinyl every time the music is over. Music can be heard well from anywhere in the building.

3. It’s surrounded by nature

There are large windows on both walls, making it best to appreciate nature while listening to music. You can see forests and the Imjin River (임진강) right in front of the window, and the land of North Korea can be seen on a clear day across the river.

4. It’s located near Heyri Art Valley

(Personal opinion: I walked 45 minutes and it wasn’t that bad)

If you love music and are planning to visit Heyri Art Valley during your trip to Korea, it would be nice to stop by Concino Concrete Concert Hall to listen to some music.
