Gewandhaus zu Leipzig

Every event has its own distinctive character, every promoter has his individual wishes and requirements. At the Leipzig Gewandhaus we live out this inimitability to the full and promote it in every single event, be it a concert, exclusive gala, show, regional meeting, scientific conference and all kind of MICE.

Your event concept is the focal point of our labours and application, its realisation is our duty.
The Event Management at the Gewandhaus will dedicate considerable time to the planning, organisation and execution of your event. We support you with intensive guidance and comprehensive service from the inception of your concept through to the management of the event itself. With a total of approximately 600 events and half a million guests each year, our team has an enormous wealth of experience at its disposal in which you can place your trust.

The substantial range of rooms and halls we offer, all appointed with state-of-the-art technical equipment, guarantees a lasting impression on your guests. Situated directly in the city centre, the Gewandhaus is quickly and easily reached from all parts of Leipzig. On foot, by car or by train, your journey to the Gewandhaus is always the shortest.

Our Event Management will be happy to provide you with an individual quote and is available to discuss your requirements at all times.
