Season 20/21

The Luzerner Sinfonieorchester is the orchestra-in-residence at the KKL Luzern and the opera orchestra of the Luzerner Theater, but it also performs at other venues in the Lucerne region.

KKL Luzern

The KKL Luzern was built according to the plans of star architect Jean Nouvel, and its outstanding acoustics make it one of the very best concert halls for classical music. It is located right at the heart of the city of Lucerne, directly by the lake and very close to the railway station.

People with disabilities can access the foyers and concert halls at KKL Luzern with ground-level entrances. They can reach all the halls of KKL Luzern from there via lifts and stairs, while all the bars and restaurants can also be accessed barrier-free with lifts and stairs.

In the Concert Hall, a total of six spaces for wheelchair users and those assisting them are available with good views of the stage. To book Spaces for wheelchair users and those assisting them please contact our Kartenbüro T+41 41 226 05 15

At the Bahnhofparking P1, there are two disabled car parking spaces available in sector D. At Bahnhofparking P2, there is another car park close to the exit. From there, people with restricted mobility or those on wheelchairs can reach KKL Luzern directly with a lift.

Luzerner Theater

The Luzerner Theater is a venue for plays, opera and ballet, hosting approximately 25 productions per year from September to June. Situated directly by the river Reuss, it has a seating capacity of 481. The theatre was built between 1837 and 1839 (and reconstructed after a fire in 1924), making it the oldest theatre in Switzerland where plays, opera and ballet are still performed.

The theatre has a staff of almost 400, and its artistic director as of the 2016/17 season is Benedikt von Peter.

The theatre offers wheelchair access and disabled toilets. Hearing aids are available for all seats in the theatre. They can be loaned free of charge in the cloakroom.
