Fodor's Review

Architect Jean Nouvel's stunning glass-and-steel building manages both to stand out from as well as to fuse with its ancient milieu. The lakeside center's roof is an oversized, cantilevered, flat plane; shallow water channels thread inside, and immense glass plates mirror the surrounding views. The main draw is the concert hall, which opened in 1998. Although the lobbies are rich in blue, red, and stained wood, the hall itself is refreshingly pale, with brilliant acoustics.

Among the annual music events is the renowned International Music Festival. A museum focuses on rotating exhibits of new international artists.
