If you are in Leipzig, remember that this city is home to the most appraised concert hall of the world. Do not just see it from outside; try to go to a concert as I did. The hall is not enriched with artistic treasures; in...More

The Gewandhaus was closed when I visited Leipzig, but the architecture was impressive. The monument in the Augustusplatz was also impressive. The former concert hall was destroyed in WWII but the monument has been standing intact since the 1700s.

We went here to one of the Bach Festival concerts and we were definitely NOT disappointed! The "new" building/architecture was amazing and bold and the acoustics inside the performance hall rival that of the Concertgebow (sp) in Amsterdam. Very modern in a very ancient city......More

Gewandhausorchester is one of the best orchestras in the world, and the Grosser Saal is beautiful and acoustically great place to listen to music. However, if you're into more modern music, you won't find it here very often, as the Gewandhaus repertoire is mostly old-fashioned,...More

This is a musical concert hall by the Augustzplaz. The building has an interesting design. A nice place to take some photos. The world's oldest orchestra Gewandhaus is performing here.

The acoustics were very good, and the seats are wide and comfortable. Access is easy, and there were multiple locations to obtain a beverage during the intermission. Purchasing tickets in advance and printing them at home was a breeze.

We went to Leipzig for the Bach Festival, which involved wonderful music, often performed in the churches for which it was written. Everything is easily accessible within this small city, although it is worth doing the bus tour outside the City ring. But the highlight...More

It has an interesting design; the acoustic is fine too. There are several bars in the foyers, access is provided to the balconies. Guests can enjoy their drinks outside.
