This slightly scary looking building on the top of a hill on the outskirts of Lucerne was a prison until 1971. 10 years later it opened as a cultural centre and has since played a key role in Lucerne's music scene. The former prison cells are now rehearsal rooms for local musicians and the club has regular live music and DJs representing a wide spectrum of musical genres, from punk to electro. In the more conservative 1980s, Sedel was the only place in Lucerne where one could play or listen to 'loud music'. Due to its out-of-town location, a Sedel shuttle bus is provided on events nights which stops at Löwenplatz, Bundesplatz and Kasernenplatz in town before the 10-minute hilly drive to Sedel. See its website for more information.
