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

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

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.
