Owner description: Since 2006 the Panometer Dresden, a former gas tank in Dresden Reick, displays the monumental 360° panoramas “BAROQUE DRESDEN” and “DRESDEN 1945” created by Berlin artist Yadegar Asisi in a regular change. The presentation of the pictures on a scale of 1:1 and a 105 m wide and 27 m high surface is supported by the use of light and sound. Standing on the 15 m high platform in the middle of the monumental picture the visitor can thus experience the perfect illusion of immerging into the history of Saxony’s capital Dresden. Between January and May/June the panorama “DRESDEN 1945” broaches the issues of tragedy and hope of the European city. The accompanying exhibition provides an introduction into the immediate aftermath of the bombing raids on February 13th in 1945. Inside of the panorama picture, which is supported by light and sound effects, the incidents of this day get then even more realistic for the visitors and they get the feeling of being directly involved in the happening. The following documentary, showing interviews with contemporary witnesses, depicts Dresden’s reconstruction in the centuries after the bombing. Between June and December “BAROQUE DRESDEN” invites its visitors to a travel in time into the epoch of Baroque, Dresden’s most famous era. Inspired by the numerous vedutas of Bernardo Bellotto, also known as Canaletto, Yadegar Asisi depicts a unique overall view of Saxony’s capital city. Detailed sceneries of the city life and the courtly routine during the Augustan Epoch, dated back to 1695 - 1760, allow the visitors to plunge into the baroque heyday. The accompanying exhibition, held in vibrant colours such as magenta, deep blue and gold, concentrates on the baroque city’s daily life. Numerous exhibits illustrate different aspects of absolutism, court and religion of this time.

Want to see the ancient Rome? Look no further, the Panometer places YOU in the very centre of the city, which you can admire in day and night.

“always take my guests”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

This is the place to go if you want an overall look and understanding of what has made the city of Dresden so special.
This year 2012 the Assisi panometer is showing Rome, ( also very goo)so if it is specifically Dresden you want to see you will need to come back in 12 months time.

“Interesting idea on a rainy day”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

In an old gas store you find a modern version of the 19th century tradition of big panaromas for tourists. When we visited it, we got a 360° panorama of Antique Rome, with splendid visual effects. on a screen of 100 meters wide and 30 meters high. Entry is 10 EUR. That's not cheap but we enjoyed the visit.

“Worth seeing”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

This was an unusual attraction in that it was not a church or a building for a change which is why we enjoyed it! It is a 360 degree photographic mural of Dresden and its people during the 18th century and the lighting changes so that it seems as though you are spending a day and a night here with appropriate sounds in the background to add authenticity and different levels of a platform to climb (stairs) to see all the detail. It's not open on Mondays and you need a taxi to get here if you don't like to take public transport. I would recommend trying to get the taxi driver to wait as it took us only 20 minutes to enjoy this attraction as all commentary was in German. We hired binoculars but didn't use them as we could see sufficient detail without them. We were lucky our genial taxi driver informed us he would wait for us as there weren't any taxis in the vicinity when we came out.
