4.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Great venue, just by the water. The architecture is impressive and the views are awe inspiring. There are often really great shows happening there and it's definitely worth going to Lucerne just for that.
  • Best concert hall in Switzerland. Maybe even the best in continental Europe. It has looks too (:
  • Great architecture by Jean Nouvel and a world famous concert hall.
  • Very impressive building and great shelter for the very common rains in Luzern!
  • World class concerts, fantastic acoustics and a stunning view from the top balcony. Don't miss the 21st century Orchestra. The local Orchestra plays movie scores live to projection (movie showing on screen, score played live). Star Trek, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean... Don't miss on the modern art exposition in the ulper floor.
