Lucerne Hall, Culture and Congress Centre, Lucerne, Switzerland
The Lucerne Hall is one of three performance
halls within Culture and Congress Centre. The famed Centre of Lucerne
hosted its first public performance with the opening of the 1998
International Music Festival. Situated on the picturesque Vierwaldstättersee
shore, the facility is also known by the acronym of its German name,
KKL (Kultur- und Kongresszentrum Luzern). It also contains a large
hall, as well as museum and exhibition space, meeting rooms,
restaurants, and a rehearsal hall.
A flat floor auditorium with one balcony, Lucerne
Hall can seat 900 people with the use of telescopic seating. The
hall is complete with a stagehouse and rigging systems for theatrical
events, trade presentations, and audio-visual presentations. The
hall can also accommodate a wide variety of popular and folk music,
as well as smaller classical recitals. The flat floor style of the
hall is equally suited to concerts with standing audience, banquets,
and cabaret theater. The rear wall of Lucerne Hall can open up to
the lobby and, in turn, to the outside, to accommodate much larger
flat-floor events such as rock concerts and exhibitions.
