It was first built for the Swiss national exhibition in Geneva in 1896.
buildings and architecture
Lucerne inaugurated in 1998 a new Culture and Congress Centre (KKL). This multi-functional building is an interesting modern construction with a high-profile acoustics and where you can enjoy great concerts. This modern construction really offers a big contrast with the old pedestrian bridges of Lucerne. The city center and its small streets are very attractive with their historical buildings, restaurants and shops of luxurious watches.
