The new concert hall is the centerpiece of the rebuilt Kulturpalast in the center of the city. Similar to the Philharmonie in Berlin and the Leipzig Gewandhaus, it is built in the so-called vineyard shape, which guarantees first-class acoustics. The hall's crowning glory is the Eule organ (Bautzen) with 67 stops and 4109 pipes - Dresden's only concert organ created for the 19th and 20th century repertoire. For the first time in its 150-year history, the concert hall with its 1760 seats and a stage facing the center of the hall offers the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra optimal spatial and tonal conditions.
