4.6
#4 of 31 in Museums in Dresden
A panoramic painting inside a former gasometer, Panometer Dresden shows the city of Dresen as it might have appeared in 1756. The 360-degree painting, created in 2006 by artist Yadegar Asisi, is 27 m (89 ft) tall and 105 m (344 ft) around. Portraying the Baroque Dresden skyline of 1756, the panorama displays scenes from the Saxon court, as well as the daily lives of citizens. A 15 m (49 ft) high viewing platform allows you to take a good look at the various scenes' details. Additional exhibits explain its creation and give historical context to enrich your visit.

  • The place worths visit it and see a panoramic view of Dresden in ruins the 2nd WW. The guided tour provides you lots of historical info and facts. The place is far from city center, but it worths a tr...  more »
  • We have visited the Panometer after a sightseeing tour and could fine classified so the individual areas on the city image. The visit is definitely impressive and the experiences of the time are represented graphically. The exhibition stimulates thinking. However, somewhat little is available for the relatively expensive entrance fee except for the scenery. The historical background are only briefly mentioned. It is enough - for the price would be more in our opinion also.

  • transported back into a time capsule and allowed to see it 360' degree in different high levels. it was worth the time and money, also how it was made, the thought process of the know how. loved it.
  • This museum seems to me rather too expensive for what it is. It would be ok (let's say it would deserve 3.5 stars) if it would cost half the price. It is rather small, and not as interesting as the 4.6 stars it has in Google would make you think it would be. Unless you are really highly into history (I'm a big fan of museums in general, history museums included, but this was not enough), better to climb up on some of the high points of the city (a church, for example) and enjoy the current view.
  • It was amazing there to see a 360° animated picture of Dresden in the middle Ages. There were also some information banners about history of Dresden. But they change exhibitons proximitly every 9 months, so you will probably see another exhibition. But the another exhibition will maybe not have something in common with Dresden.
  • It is an amazing art work, a true 360° panorama, with sounds and lights simulating a day in the destroyed Dresden. It makes you feel sad for the city, but astonished by the great work. It is not for families, as it requires some understanding of the history and the atmosphere is quite tense. But perfect for history lovers and art lovers.
  • Stunning views. Recommend to take the free shuttle back.
