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.

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.

As inhabitants of Leipzig we go here 5-6 times per year. Wonderful music! You wouldn't say from the outside, the design is rather 1970-ies DDR-stylish, but the hall has a perfect acoustics. The Gewandhaus Orchestra is one in its kind, world class. When visiting Leipzig,...More

Dear John W, thank you for your message. Obviously there is a misunderstanding. We are the Leipzig concert hall "Gewandhaus" and not the Leipzig Opera, where you visited Wagner's Ring Cycle. Our orchestra, the Gewandhausorchester plays also at the opera, but we have nothing to...More
