Lucerne Culture and Congress Centre, Lucerne

(4.6/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • I went to the KKL Luzern during the Festival Off-Plan Stage. It's a very nice room with the stage in the Center and the audience positioned around and in the gallery. I recommend it and would stay again

  • Funny show. Is everything art? I came away wondering how to appreciate these "works" and regretted that one does not pay the admission ticket after seeing the exhibition. There will be some exhibitions which would not bring much

  • 21st century Symphony Orchestra - film screenings with live musical accompaniment - are the absolute hammer! We have seen so far: Titanic, Gladiator and Harry Potter as next we look forward to Pirates of the Caribbean and know already that there will again be a top experience! Absolutely recommended!

  • 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.
