Providing a fitting musical setting for Easter, the Lucerne Festival at Easter features sacred as well as secular music in the city’s churches and in the main concert hall of the KKL Luzern.

The Easter Festival provides a splendid opening to the festival season in Lucerne. Established in 1988 and taking place during Passiontide with final performances on Palm Sunday, the festival is devoted to spiritual music, with concerts taking place in the main concert hall of the KKL Luzern and in the atmospheric ambience of Lucerne’s churches.

The Lucerne Festival in Summer mesmerises audiences with premier classical music in August and September, while in November it is the turn of the Lucerne Festival at the Piano.
