  • 1. Albrechtsburg Concerts

  • 3. Krystallpalast

    Music Festivals

    Leipzig's annual music festival is in June.

    Augustuspl., Leipzig, Saxony, Germany
  • 5. Neues Gewandhaus

    This uninspired touch of socialist architecture is home to an undeniably splendid orchestra. Tickets to concerts are difficult to obtain unless you reserve well in advance. Sometimes spare tickets are available at the box office a half hour before the evening performance.

  • 6. Philharmonie Dresden

    Dresden's fine orchestra takes center stage in the city's annual music festival, from mid-May to early June.

    - 0351 - 486--6866
  • 7. Semperoper Dresden

    The opera in Dresden holds an international reputation largely due to its opera house. Destroyed during the war, the building has been meticulously rebuilt and renovated. Tickets are reasonably priced but also hard to come by; they're often included in package tours. Try reserving tickets on the website, or stop by the box office (just left of the main entrance) about a half hour before the performance. If that doesn't work, take one of the opera-house tours, a nice consolation that gets you into the building.

    - 0351 - 491–1705 - evening box office
  • 8. Tanzpalast

    In the august setting of the Schauspielhaus (city theater), the Tanzpalast attracts a thirtysomething crowd. This was the place to be seen in GDR Leipzig.

    Bosestr. 1
    - 0341 - 960–0596
