Lucerne Culture and Congress Centre, Lucerne
(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.

  • Several times in the KKL. It is incredibly beautiful and very elegant here. The staff is very attentive and helpful.

  • I was there for a congress, it's a huge building with an adjacent bar the Zeebar. It's mostly metalic. We used the theater area which was comfortable enough. 
  • Once again, I was allowed to attend a concert at the KKL, this time it was a concert of the Symphony Orchestra Lucerne.

  • Besides the beautiful and impressive architecture of the building the concert hall might also be one of the best ones in Switzerland. The accoustic is simply great.
  • Sehr gute Akkustik
  • Hervorragende Akkustik für klassische Konzerte. Verhältnismässig teuer. Untalentierte Toningenieure verderben die Freude an Konzerten mit Verstärker (Jazz, Chansons etc.), da sie weder eine vernünftige Tonmischung noch eine erträgliche Lautstärke herstellen. Kein Wunder werden vor solchen Konzerten manchmal Gehörschutzstöpsel verteilt! So macht es keine Freude...
  • Cool building by world renowned Architect and firm of Jean Nouvel. Seems like multiple buildings and spaces all contained under one awesome roof.
  • 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.
