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

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.

We saw Yan Tiersenn performing there and must admit, the acoustics in the building is really not bad! However, the building can be seen without a concert visit - the huge ceiling paintings and the building was built in the GDR (East Germany times). The...More

We attended an Baroque Easter music/Organ concert. The attendance was very good and the sound was excellent! The acoustics are truly great. We sat toward the back a bit and they were excellent seats.
