  • Really enjoyed the fantastic exhibition of Dresden 1945. I was quite taken by it, even though it is a piece of art. The true reality in 1945 must have been horrible. The exhibition gave a new perspect...  more »
  • It's really amazing and very different from everything. A giant picture of 360 degrees on a cylindrical wall of 27 meters high by 105 meters in perimeter. The image shows how the city should be at that time view from a certain height. It is very well done and full of details. In the exhibition there is a video where they explain how did. The Panometer is located a bit far from the Centre of Dresden, but with the tram or bus will arrive well. To get you should take tram 1 or 2 and get off at Liebstädter Straße or take Bus 64 and get off at Natherstrasse, opposite to the Panometer Dresden. The price of the entrance €11.50 for adults (slightly expensive). You can rent binoculars to see the larger images. Up to the platform that is in the Center looks very well. The programming changes seasonally, I could see "Dresden 1945" that shows the city after the massacre caused by Allied bombing.

  • You should compare the images from ASIS, but you should look at each, because after the visit you should find the point in the city. Simply on the Tower of the Kreuzkirche up and already you can compare the 360 degree image with the today's image and you have no boring impression as some others. It is simply a trip worth and Dresden has to see more

  • Very very impressive. I recommend visiting to everyone. I'm interested how Great Barrier Reef looks like....
  • Gigantic panorama. Very beautiful and so many details to catch your attention for a long long time. Definitely a unique experience and more stunning then the version in Berlin.
  • Awesome museum that is different from the normal stuff out there. Really cool concept. Specially nice if you know the city!
  • There is probably nothing to see here if you're not interested in art or history of the area. All it has is the giant dome shaped wall painting of Dresden in the past which is very impressive if you appreciate art but entrance fee was too much for it.
  • Beautiful museum-theatre. We visited here in April 2015 and the panorama was Dresden right after the bombing. It was breathtaking, it looked so real!
