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.

It was okay for a few minutes but I expected more. Just a big mural on a wall and I found it a bit cheesy. It's okay if you have nothing else to do, but I wouldn't recommend making a special trip out here.

If you want an overall look how Dresden is so special you have to go here and find out how unusual it is. It is a 360 degrees photographic mural of the City. Just 5 mins walk from Reick Station.

Inside the panometer you get to see the city as it was from different perspectives and the various scenes and use of mixed media is brilliant.

A bit out of the normal tourist's way but it's atually pretty easy to find with the S-Bahn. Incredible pictures -- when I was there, they had Baroque Dresden as the theme but I think the themes may change.

This is easily accessed by train from Dresden Reick station. It is just a five minute walk from the station. It features a really interesting history of Dresden and a simply wonderful panoramic 360 degree view of old Dresden as it would have been in 1756. The panorama changes though and sometimes features Everest or something different, so check online first.
