#5 of 36 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.

  • This place is so easy to get to from the centre of Dresden, I am not sure why there are comments on here to the contrary. A bus will take you straight outside or a short 5 minute walk from the...  more »

  • The tickets are expensive, the staff is unfriendly and the place is too dark most of the time to read the information around. That's a pity, because there are a lot of interesting information panels.....  more »

  • Technically impressive and deeply moving display. Worth getting a good look from every level of the tower - it's surprising how much the view changes.
  • I went there for the "Dresden 1945" exhibition. The main theme was the bombing of Dresden. The story is built up with some history and background (which is a must) and the music makes the experience even more impressive. It's a very intriguing place to visit if you are not only interested in the hard facts bit also an emotional experience.
  • Truly a moving and powerful experience. A must see and experience if you're in Dresden and interested in both srt and the impact of WWII. The artist is so insightfuk and has created an immersive experience.
  • Impressive and impactful presentation on city bombing in WO II in general and Dresden in particular
  • An amazing thought provoking experience which should be enough to stop any of these politicians from considering a war.
