Breathtaking panoramic view upon the Baroque city of Dresden
Based on old documents and paintings, architect/artist Yadegar Asisi and his team reconstructed a historically correct huge panoramic view (one of the largest panoramas in the world) of Dresden as a spectator most probably would have seen when standing on top of the Hofkirche in the year 1756. The computermade panorama painting, measuring about 27 meter in heighth and 105 meter in circumference is shown in a specially remodelled gasometer some 5 kilometers distance from the old city centre. Accompanied by an exhibition showing some of the original sources and documents Asisi used to construct the panorama (best known to most visitors are the paintings by Italian baroque veduta painter Bernardo Bellotto) the visitor is first being led around the panorama. Info at the exhibition, also showing original fragments of baroque Dresden, is available in German and English language. After that one enters a 15 m. tower constructed in the centre of the panorama, leading to a breathtaking view upon baroque Dresden in 1756. The all around panorama on a scale 1:1 with corresponding light and sound effects presents the visitors a special event, which will not be forgotten easily. Audioguides and binoculars are available for rent at the Panometer.
