Architectural Building Convention Center
Marvel at the innovative architecture and one of the finest concert halls in the world at Lucerne Culture and Congress 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.

Where to stay in Lucerne

Small, historical Lucerne is big in its accommodation offerings. Surrounding the bay are plenty of mid-range and upscale hotels for those looking to splurge, putting you right downtown with easy access to sights, bars, and restaurants. If your budget is tight, look into the handful of guesthouses in the city. There are limited hostels available, and they tend to be a bit farther from the city core. Be sure to book in advance to avoid missing out.

  • Lovely view.... Nice place to enjoy the old architecture
  • Amazing building, unique in the world! Would love to hear a concert here!
  • Amazing architecture! It's worth taking a guided tour to learn about all the interesting details of this amazing construction.
