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.

  • Beautiful and fascinating experience. We would have liked to have seen the Dresden 1945, but the exhibition changes 2 times a year, so at this time was the Baroque Dresden they showed. It was a fantastic experience. One can spend a long time looking after details of the huge setup. It is easy to get there by tram.

  • Awesome museum that is different from the normal stuff out there. Really cool concept. Specially nice if you know the city!
  • 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.
  • This is the 3rd Panometer I saw after Leipzig and Pforzheim and again the result is overwhelming. I hope I can see many more Panometers.
  • 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!
