LUCERNE FESTIVAL attracts classical music stars from all over the world. The world’s most-celebrated orchestras, legendary conductors, and virtuoso soloists gather in this idyllic setting nestled on Lake Lucerne, in the heart of Switzerland, to celebrate a festival of music. The KKL Lucerne, which was designed by Jean Nouvel, serves as the Festival “headquarters,” providing an outstanding concert hall that is acclaimed for its phenomenal acoustics and its exquisite architecture alike.
Lucerne is the starting point for the Lucerne-Lake Lucerne Region and offers a wide range of attractions to discover. Centuries-old sights such as the Chapel Bridge, the Lion Monument and the historic Old City form the exciting contrast to contemporary Lucerne: the avant-garde KKL Luzern, the abundance of restaurants and an attractive range of shopping. The Festival City Lucerne delights throughout the year, with classic, blues, jazz, rock, comics or the splendidly colourful Carnival. The Rosengart Collection, the natural monuments in the Glacier Garden and the Swiss Museum of Transport are among our museum highlights. Immerse yourself in this city, stroll along the docks and get to know the legendary charm of Lucerne on one of our guided tours of the city.
