This building stands out because it is a modern black building right on the edge of the lake, surrounded by much older architecture. The auditorium is very good, with excellent acoustics.

My girlfriend took me to the Randy Newman concert in the KKL. The building has long been one that I've found fascinating. Wonderful architecture, the performance hall is lofts up and producing an airy feel. The acoustics are brilliant and there are plenty of bars to get get drinks at during intermission. We found standing outside at the fountain and... More

What an eyesore. Even on a sunny day it looks like a giant black aircraft hanger. Inside is just as bad with yards of concrete walls and characterless architecture.

Attended as an optional on our tour - wish maybe I had done something else instead. The show was just standard a performance and had some audience participation. The set menu was very basic, and all in all not worth the amount paid for the show and dinner. Find something else to do.

Great Architecture: Building and concert hall. Try the balcony on the Top Floor: This alone worth a trip to Lucerne. During the Lucerne Festival one can enjoy the best Hotels around the World, Especially the Lucerne Festival Orchestra!

Be sure to take a guided tour of KKL on Sunday mornings. Go behind the scenes and marvel at the design of this building. Afterwards have a Sunday lunch in the World Cafe, with great contemporary dishes in a fab setting...enjoy!

What a location - just at the boarder of the lake. What an architecture - Jean Novel designed it and it is even though quiet dark very welcoming. And now: what an acoustic - you can sit where you want (there are still some place even better) and you will experience one of the nicest concert experience, either in a... More

We went to a concert showing Star Trek film and the orchestra played the score. I thought it was brilliant. Nothing is cheap in CH but this was well worth what we paid

When you are visiting Lucerne, try to visit a concert in this great building. Mr Nouvel was very lucky to create this building, looking just great inside and outside and the acoustics are even better then the looks. Always plenty things to do around this building. Don't miss it while visiting Lucerne, but you won't miss it since you see... More
