We did not get inside to a concert, but the building is impressive. The main windows had banners proclaiming that they had been in business for 275 years.

I can't recommend the Gewandhaus too highly -- wonderful acoustics, usually a good choice of music, and, importantly, seating that is not difficult to get to. One of my favourite concert halls worldwide.

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.
