Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Located on the premises of the Leipziger Stadtwerke, the Panometer Leipzig originally was used to store city gas. In 2003 the Berlin artist Yadegar Asisi started its remodelling with displaying unique and monumental 360° panoramas in the former gasometer. The Panometer’s overall artistic concept is a combination of the accompanying exhibition, introducing to the current topic, and the 32 m high and more than 100 m wide panorama, that is staged through the simulation of night and day by light and sound. Standing on the 15 m high platform in the middle of the monumental picture you can thus experience the perfect illusion of immerging into a distant country or an elapsed period of time. Over the past years, the Panometer Leipzig already took its visitors to the foot of Mount Everest, into the life of ancient Rome, to the beauty of the tropical rain forest, through the confusions of the Battle of the Nations in Leipzig and into the astounding underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. Further panoramas are planned for the future and will be presented in the frame work of a world premiere in Leipzig. Besides the visitation of the impressive panorama and the tour through the accompanying exhibition, the visitors can witness the creation of the world’s largest panorama pictures by watching the making-of film at the end of the exhibition. After the visit, the Panometer-Cafe invites the guests to relax with a cup of coffee and a piece of cake. CURRENT PANORAMA-EXHIBITION: since January 28th 2017 all-the-year "TITANIC - The Promise of Modernity"

“Amazing exhibition”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Excellent display in a disused gasworks. After a somewhat dry entrance with writing in both German and English the main 360 degree pamorama exhibition has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Also, interesting video with English subtitles showing the project from conception to the construction process. It is truely amazing and well worth a visit if you are in the Leipzig area.

“An extraordinary experiance”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Entering the first part of exposition, I was confused and actually I though it is again a "big nothing", some historical information about the city, some pictures...However entering the main room with 360° picturing a day of battle of nations at Leipzig in 1813. Only possibility to describe it is to see it.

“Awesome piece of art with special effects!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I am not into art but these are incredible. We visited the one in Leipzig and the one in Berlin both were incredible. Well worth a visit the Leipzig Card from tourist information gives you a discount off transport and entrance to this attraction.
