Architectural Building · Hidden Gem · Convention Center
Marvel at the innovative architecture and one of the finest concert halls in the world at KKL Luzern - Lucerne Culture and Convention Centre. Construction began in 1995 under the direction of Parisian architect Jean Nouvel. The complex houses a multifunctional hall, a convention center, and a world-renowned concert hall with exceptional acoustics. The three unique buildings are lined up like ships in a harbor, all covered by the distinctive "magical" roof. Take a tour through the center to discover its other architectural nuances--including water from the neighboring lake, which is channeled through all three spaces.

  • As always, a perfect night at the KKL! The orchestra performed great and we enjoyed every minute of this concert! We love film music and it was great!  more »
  • It certainly is a new and unique building in that super small central main area of the city. Despite its size and construction of glass and its shape, it blends in well. I looked for it as I arrived.....  more »

  • Enjoyed the Lucerne Festival here with a magnificent piano concerto. The concert hall has great acoustics. The views on the lake edge are gorgeous. There is a lovely cafe inside. Quality is good all around. Underground parking was very convenient. And the lovely downtown is all just walking distance.
  • This place is a must see in Lucern. The majestic architecture is so naturally well integrated with the environment that you will not believe your eyes. Furthermore there are precious painting exposures and concerts are top rated also for quality of sound! If I could give one star more probably would be for this place! A gem in the heart of Luzern
  • Superb cultural palace with amazing accoustics, one of the prime places for classical an modern music in Switzerland. Well located too, just right next to the train station and also the lake. There are amazing orchestras an musicians who give concerts here. Always well worth a visit to Lucerne. Also architecturally impressive with the big roof, that houses a bar, and is nice on sunny days to sit under.
  • Nice place with river atmosphere... Long wooden bridge is a historical icon for Lucerne... Near by river long shopping centers available.. boating also enjoyable...
  • A few days ago, we went to an orchestra performance (our fifth time to visit in the last 6 years). We find it very conveniently located near the main train station of Luzern. Watch out for the summer festival - it is not to be missed!
