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.

  • A very nice experience. You can learn a lot and the canvas is extremely detailed. I can recommend it a lot.
  • It was amazing place, I have never seen something like this before
  • Great experience but given the location may not be a must-go in dresden
  • A place to visit to learn about Dresden. That panoramic view is surely an impressive perspective art!
  • Right now the display in Dresden is about the time of Baroque. Very nice display, you can actually feel like you got back in time and you are actually there, in the baroque area. It really interesting to compare places in Dresden back and nowadays. Next year the panometer will display Dresden in 1945. Wish I could see it too.
