KKL Luzern - Lucerne Culture and Convention Centre, Lucerne

4.5
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.

  • We are always impressed-by the architecture, the offers, the style and quality of the concerts, the restaurants and the service. Friendly, nice, professional. The tour of the KKL is also recommended! Happy again at any time!

  • This building with its prominent roof is the cultural center of Lucerne as well as the Convention center. It is next to the train station and close to the lake. It can have opera, cinema halls, restaurants and cafes It's still an ugly building.

  • Lucerne is a cultural hall. It is located by the lake and has a modern art museum. The building is glazed and very innovative.

  • A very nicely designed building. Good infrastructure. Plenty of place for your coats and stuff. Good audience but kinda small. Pretty steep sitting angle. Overall a great place for a concert.
  • An utterly extraordinary venue. The architecture alone is worth visiting the building. If you are able to get a ticket to a concert in the main hall, take the chance.
  • Excellent venue with amazing acoustic. I was in back row of the 4th balcony but had not problem with sound quality. The top floor bar is also amazing for an interval drink. Beautiful views in amazing architecture
  • Nice embiance. Even the less expensive spots on the forth balcony were good. There is a free coat check on the fourth floor. And there is the opportunity to visit the roof in the breaks to catch a bit of fresh air.
  • It was astonishing! Friendly and helpfull staff. Also a plus for the architecture. Perfect to feel fancy for an evening;
