It was an entertaining and powerful evening. Great artists, pleasant ambience, warm welcome at reception... We were thrilled and can recommend the gala concert - we heard Vivaldi's Four Seasons.

The kennel is very large and spacious. It would be good if there were a signpost or map so that you don't have to search so long for the location of the event!

If you are Dresden during Christmas time. This is a must see. You can walk around with mulled wine and food and it’s all at a good price.

It was a very beautiful evening. We bought the CD ourselves to remember this great concert.

Excellent musicians, very good acoustics, comparatively small frame. Great experience!
