“Good orchestral concert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We went to a concert by the Haydn Orchestra here, which we enjoyed very much. Great acoustics and all seats are good, so you don't have to go for the expensive ones.

“Very good concert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Concert was very good, tickets not too expensive and the venue was of course of historical interest and it added a new dimension to visiting Mendelssohn's house etc to have attended a concert in the Gewandhaus.
When ordering drinks for the interval we had a whole stand-up table to ourselves not a tiny space balanced half-way along a shelf as in London theatres.

“Interesting example of DDR architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

We attended a concert in the main hall. The organ is magnificent. Good seats with clear visibility and wonderful acoustics. Other than that, the building itself is rather uninspired.

“Looks great outside looking in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Impressive lobby area and from the photos expect the concert hall was impressive as well; unfortunately no access as no concert was scheduled.

“OF GREAT ACOUSTICS AND MODERN ARCHITECTURE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Gewandhaus zu Leipzig or Mendellson Hall, with the impressive and very modern architecture,with the nearby buildings in the same line, are in contrast to the historican centre, where all buildings are classic.The concert Hall is of excellent acoustics , i would love to be there for a concert, but there was not enough time, as we stayed only one night at Leipzig during our trip to Germany.
