Portraying the Baroque Dresden skyline of 1756, the panorama displays scenes from the Saxon court, as well as the daily lives of citizens.

  • 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.
