The Leipzig Gewandhaus is the venue for around 800 events a year. Here, the Gewandhaus Orchestra plays its symphony concerts in the Great Hall, while the somewhat smaller Mendelssohn Hall hosts the Gewandhaus chamber music.

Concerts of well-known musical greats take place regularly, and it is also a popular location for lectures and congresses. The large hall seats a total of 1,900 visitors and houses the majestic Schuke organ. The Gewandhaus is also part of the Leipzig Notenspur and the Leipzig Notenrad, as well as the venue for the annual Lachmesse (European Festival for Humour and Satire).
