The singing was heavenly, not a bad seat in the house. I was astonished by the acoustics, one of the top concert halls in Europe.

I'd booked two concerts here. Accoustics are fantastic and the resident orchestra are superb. There are a lot of steps (not sure if there are elevators) and the line up for the cloakrooms at the end of the performance looked long. Wonderful programme of concerts...More

The Gewandhaus is a spectacular building, constructed in the late 1970s during the GDR era. The original concrete structure is now reclad in brown tiles and makes a striking foil to the Opernhaus at the other end of the Augustusplatz, with the dramatic new University...More

Located in Leipzig's city centre and opposite of the Opera house it's a must go in particular to attend a concert from Leipzig's infamous Gewandhaus Orchestra. Wow.

If you cannot attend a concert, you can view the foyer and check out the shop. The mural is interesting

The building dates back to the communist era and is very ugly both inside and outside. However there are few good reasons to visit it: a) to hear world famous Gewandhaus Orchester under baton of Maestro Riccardo Chailly, b) the main concert hall design allowing...More

Was there for a Humbolt event, and it was spectacular. The best part was the Mendelsohn Quartet, playing Mendelsohn, in the Mendelsohn Salle. It was fantastic.
