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

KKL Luzern (Lucerne Culture and Congress Centre) is an incredible multi-purpose building in the city of Luzern (Lucerne) on the "Lake of Luzern". The KKL Luzern has a concert hall with just absolutely incredible acoustic. Conventions and food festivals are also held here. We enjoyed a concert here and by far the most fantastic acoustics I have ever heard. The... More

A fun festival, and, as per festivals in Switzerland the festival food is outstanding! I've been here several times, and it has grown tremendously! Really good assortment of artists. Walking throughout Lucerne is always a treat - such a beautiful city! (be certain to walk over to the Lion Monument - Löwendenkmal). It is one of the most moving sculptures... More

We attended two concerts at the venue held as part of the 2013 Lucerne Festival. The seating arrangements, the seats, the sound quality, the entry arrangements, accessibility etc were all good.

On the inside, this is one of the finest concert halls in Europe, possibly the world. It is imposing. You get a good view of the stage from any seat. The seats are comfortable with adequate legroom. The acoustics are superb. The Luzern Music Festival presents an outstanding programme. Shortcomings are that they sometimes turn off the air cooling too... More
