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

A wide selection of performances with Music Festivals at Easter, in Sumer and piano Festival in Novembre. A great place for a city like Lucern. The best accoustic in Switzerland.

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.

Super modern and cool. Concert hall itself is relatively intimate. Great accoustics as advertised! My only problem is that there is a rail that protects us from falling over, but it was absolutely right in our eye-line to the performance - for both my wife and I. That was really annoying (1st row balcony) in what would have been a... More

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
