#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.

  • We were in the exhibition "The Baroque Dresden" - and not more out come from the amazement. You must have seen just the equipment used and the feeling to be in the midst of the life of this interesting period.

  • The panorama presents a day in Dresden as the seventeenth century men could live. Observed with pleasure a lot of details of daily life. The panorama located in the suburbs, it is worth to learn about the best way to go to the tourist office.

  • All information in both German and English. Duper installation. Pay for the binoculars they enhance the final experience. Stay for the film too.
  • I think this is a one-of-a-kind experience that can not be found anywhere else. I liked how detailed the art was and I was really transferred back in time for a little while. The panorama that I saw was Dresden at the time of Augustus the Strong. It helped that this is off the beaten track so it's not visited as much by tourists.
  • Very interesting and educational. Café serves wonderful Italian Hot Chocolate!
  • Seriously one of the best art exhibitions I have ever been to! The picture really seams to suck you in!
  • There are two different panoramas presented. They are being changed every year. One is Dresden in Baroque, the second one presents the city after bombardment in 1945.

Where to stay in Dresden

The Old City, or Altstadt district, is the city's historical center. You'll find a wide selection of accommodations around the major tourist sites. For an area that stays active both day and night, consider lodging in Aussere Neustadt, located northeast of the Old City. The Hellerau District has an urban and hip vibe, thanks to the fashionable young locals who populate the area. Boutique hotels contribute to the area's chic feel.
