the Gewandhaus is truly a gorgeous concert hall that is a lovely architectural landmark and provides amazing entertainment in the form of concerts. First built in 1781, it was later rebuilt in 1981. Make sure you allow time on your tour of the city to see it lit up at night. The real highlight is the music emanating from inside, for the acoustics are truly top-notch. Kurt Masur used to be synonymous with the building. Its halls also house an impressive organ and are well worth a visit.
