Great concert hall
Oct 2021 • Solo
If you're interested in classical music, you surely have heard of the famous Gewandhaus orchestra, maybe listened to some of their recordings. If you have a chance to go to one of their concerts in their home, the great Gewandhaus with its warm, but precise acoustics, do it! The concert hall is wonderful. The exterior of the building may be an acquired taste...

REVIEW BASED ON THE EXTERIOR ONLY
Mar 2020
This building is usually given four or five stars in reviews as it is based on going inside. It was closed while I was there so my review is soley based on the building itself. Its a bit like the Opernhaus on the same square where it simply doesnt do enough to get you excited especially when you know what goes on inside. Its a strange looking building which also lights up at night and I found the most interesting part about it was the murals that shine through its windows.

A must in Leipzig. Great concerts!
Dec 2019
The variety and quality of the concerts as well as the sound make it a great experience. Nice is the option to stay in the lobby for a snack and drinks in the lobby of the Gewandhaus to reflect the concert.

Beautiful venue with welcoming staff
Dec 2019
We attended two concerts during our stay in Leipzig and fully enjoyed the comfort and beauty of this concert space. Staff were both friendly and helpful. They even provided free cough drops for guests! This will definitely be high on our list of places to visit the next time we are in Leipzig.

Located at the heart of the city it was great experience to wander around to the beautiful building and attend a concert. The student ticket was very reasonable and it was a wonderful evening altogether.

A Concert Hall with a History!
May 2019 • Friends
Try to book a seat in advance in order to enjoy a concert by the world famous Gewandhausorchester!
If you have additional time, get to know the history of the Gewandhaus. The current building is now at the 3rd site since the first official location in 1781 - the orchestra itself was founded in 1743 by local textile merchants!

Legendary orchestra in DDR housing...
May 2019 • Friends
Built in the 60-ies during the DDR-time, the brutalism of the exterior is surprisingly well balanced on the inside. Especially the public lounge/lobby areas have beautifully decorated, sweeping surfaces. The concert hall itself is more functional, but still quite beautiful if not as startling as, for instance, the Berlin Philharmonie.
The supreme and world famous Gewanhaus orchester sounds great in this, their home.

With the last years reshaping of the Augustusplatz (foremost the new University building, Paulinerkirche) the house actually looks as it belongs in the square.

If your'e in Leipzig and have the time, a visit is a must!

A remarkable building
May 2019 • Couples
The stalinistic architecture isn´t considered to be estethically appealing, but the Gewandhaus - built during the DDR-era - certainly is an exception! The exterior might be a little bit brutal, but the interior is fantastic and the great hall is magnificent with - which is most important - very good acoustics.

Excellent concert hall and orchestra
Mar 2019 • Family
Great modern concert hall with purposely planned tiered seating leading to good views of the stage
Excellent acoustics and high quality conductors and orchestras. Interesting modern fresco in the foyer area. Very close to Leipzig central area.
