went to see Titanic Live in KKL. Seating was poor for prices charged. Orchestra and choir were brilliant. Toilets were blocked the night we were there so was very bad smell around area

The KKL, how it's known by locals, is one of the best concert halls in the world. The acoustics are just amazing and the interior is sleek but beautiful. I've been there so many times mostly for classic music but have also heard/see a few jazz concerts. The seats are quite comfortable and you get a good view from almost... More

The concert hall is also known as the KKL, a very striking architectural piece on the lake next to the train station, with the alps as its backdrop. Beautiful. We booked tickets in advance to watch the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra perform the score of Howard Shore for the Lord of the Rings, together with the Chorus, the Lucerne Boys... More

We attended the Pirates of the Caribbean IV symphony at KKL and booked the remaining last few tickets at the second to the last row. Although the seats we had were pretty steep in location, the view wasn't bad and the acoustics were really great. Drinks during intermission were not cheap but access to the top floor after the concert... More

Many good concerts as well as exhibitions . I attended a very good lecture there. You can obtain a program at the tourist office or walk inside to get program. The building is very contemporary and located right by the Lake

What a lovely evening to attend a performance here. Good acoustics and seating. During my visit, there was an interesting roster of various types of music. Located directly on the lake. Perfect atmosphere.
