Stunning building by starchitect Jean Nouvel. Features a spectacular roof (ironic as i come from Sydney and our Opera House is famous for its roof style - but this one is flat but huge. Concert hall is modern but first rate - upper stalls have steepest rows I have ever seen, but concert hall is excellent. You can have drinks... More

If you ever get the chance for a concert, musical etc at the KKL - just do it! The acoustic is fantastic. Moreover the building is extraordinary, modern and well located lakeside, right next to the main station, just 5 minutes walk to the old town. At night the lights give this building a special effect and if you are... More

It is right by the railway station and have a fantastic lake side view with the backdrop of the Swiss Alps. There is a fountain that you can enjoy while you are strolling around

Imposing structure, not to be missed, tends to have conferences, concerts, meetings etc. Fab surroundings where people generally chill out both day and night. They do have cafes and restaurants attached, 2 mins walk from the train station. Beautiful fountain at the front.

I spent two full days here for business and the amenities etc, were like you would expect from a convention centre like this one. Food was nice but sometimes too over the top, tiny portions and mostly cold. The definition of service with a smile should be explained to the waiters. Most of them looked like they wished they were... More

We came for a concert to this fantastic place right on the lake of Lucerne. All staff was very friendly and helpful. The outside as well as the inside was very impressive by it's architecture and the top material which was used.

This rating is more in relation to the artwork on display the centre is very modern in an old traditional city. It is in prime spot next to the railway station and good view of lake Lucerne.

The fountains and grounds are quite nice and if your lucky and have the time go see a show. The Luzern Film Festival was... More

A concert in the KKL is an exceptional experience. Especially concerts of the Lucerne Festival are highly recommended, as they offer the opportunity to listen top orchestra of the world.
