  • I would recommend to visit this place once you arrive Dresden and before exploring the rest of attractions. This place will show you the panoramic view of both day and night of Dresden. Lovin't it 
  • In order to appreciate is, of course, determine which exhibition is, but the design of the Panometer is very special

  • Great location, if they found you because. Caution when crossing the Elbe Blitzer! The Panometer houses a lovingly crafted and well-thought-out exhibition. On several floors it has accompanied with a 350 degree view of Dresden from a different epoch, music and sounds. Depending on the angle of view (floor of the viewing tower) to explore always new details in the same place. Spend amusing 1-2Stunden you will seem not so long. It was great. In the port you can a making of see, if you like.

  • 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!
