Breathtaking... this music/concert hall is one of the best in it's kind, the acoustics are perfect wherever you sit! and the engineers have made wonderful adapting phono-absorbing structures that are modelled depending on thy music being orchestrated. Wonderul again and again, no sign of age...

I was there for a congress, it's a huge building with an adjacent bar the Zeebar. It's mostly metalic. We used the theater area which was comfortable enough.

This is one of the most superb pieces of modern architecture I have seen - it is such a credit to the people who run the city. The roof soars high above and extends out a seemingly impossible distance from its supports. It's a thing of beauty you should see close up.

This building stands out on the Lucerne skyline and if you take any of the boats out on the lake you will definitely notice it or walk right by it as you exit the boats. They had some cool fountains out front and was home to a festival going on while I was in town.

Very close to the train station and old town, and it's free to walk around and appreciate the dramatic building. Worth a detour.

We attended a concert during the Blue Balls festival and enjoyed the atmosphere, sightlines and acoustics in the auditorium. After the concert we went to the bar on the top floor which has wonderful night-time views over the lake and town - a special part of our visit to Lucerne.

Very good cafe on the ground floor of this stunning building. Although self service the helpful staff will bring to the table any sandwiches/snacks that have had to be heated. If you prefer a more relaxed atmosphere there is a very nice smaller lounge cafe on the 3rd floor near the art gallery with great views over the lake.

Probably one of the only modern building in a city littered with medieval era buildings. The architecture is indeed stunning and its location by Lake Luzern adds a picturesque beauty to the setting. It is conveniently located next to the central railway station. Perfect place for a few photos unless you are attending a concert.
