Brass band concert

Top modern and excellent sound! Good muscial choice - a place to listen to classical concerts! BUT tickets have to be quite often reserved well in advance which is a shame.

We had great comfortable seats for the Vienna Orchestra. The first note made the hair on the back of my neck stand because the sound was so amazingly clear. The acoustics are something that I'll probably never experience again. Ticket price was high at $300 a seat and it was suggested in email by the Hall to wear "black tie".... More

This is a great venue by a good architect. I think every seat has a good view and the sound is out f this world. There are all sorts of concerts, ranging from classical to ethno.

Very modern, minimalist, functional, Swiss facility. We had crappy seats for Diana Krall but still could hear her breathe. Connection to train station brilliant. If artists I liked were playing there again I'd consider the facility a plus.

Although it's just over 10 years since it was built, the KKL in Lucern is still stunningly outstanding both as a modern building, a perfect concert hall seating almost 2000 people and yielding excellent acoustics to every single one. Spacious and confortable seating is included. Outside you get a breathtaking view across the lake all the way up to the... More

For travelers who visit Switzerland, Lucerne is a definite stop. While the drive from Zurich is an easy one, traveling by train is effortless and allows you to enjoy the natural beauty of the country. The Bahnhof starts and ends at the beautiful, crystal clear lake and the city is divided by a pristine river flowing through the locks and... More
