In order to enable you to make long-term plans, we send out our travel previews for tour operators and other major customers in July of the previous year. From this point on we will be pleased to accept your written orders.
*Due to the current, still very dynamic situation, our programme for the 241st Gewandhaus season 2021/2022 is expected to appear in July 2021.
Booking conditions for own events of the Gewandhaus
After placing your order, you will receive a binding offer from us stating the number of tickets, the price and the option date. The option is valid for 8 weeks before the event in question. Up to this point, you may cancel or reduce the number of tickets free of charge. If you do not cancel, we will send you a binding invoice after the cancellation deadline. Tickets cannot be returned free of charge after the invoice has been issued. After receipt of payment, tickets will be sent to you by post (for a fee).
A ticket request during the current season is possible at any time in writing. If we are unable to offer you a contingent, the desired number of tickets or price category immediately, we will be happy to put you on our waiting list and inform you automatically as soon as concert tickets are available again.
Different conditions apply to the following performances:
- Christmas Oratorio concerts in the Thomaskirche in mid-December.
- New Year's Eve concerts with Beethoven's 9th Symphony
Due to the very high demand for these dates, the option is valid for 12 weeks before the respective event.
We look forward to the following highlights in the 2021-2022 season:
