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.

  • 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.
