Interesting Building with a spectacular roof. We attended a concert and were impressed with the accustoms and our comfortable seats.

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.

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

I wish we had been able to see a performance. Very interesting design of a waterfall outside the building and just great to walk around.

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

This is a music city. Lot's of music events during the summer so you can say this city knows how to do music! You'll find the sound quality very good from any seat. Seats are comfortable and overall ambiance is super. There is a great selection of music at the KKL and you should book ahead of time.

I just love the architecture and the location is prime. There are several classical festivals throughout the year and they have a lot of jazz concerts at the KKL.
