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.

You get a fascinating view of the 1945 after bombs Dresden. Some boards are there to relate the exact historical facts, while the extraordinary vedute by Yadegar Asisi tell you what you really need to see about WWII, destructiveness and humanity.

A must see attraction. Altough it is not so well known and at the southern edge of town in the old gas tanks from the City gas company it is a beautifull painting of 18 century Dredsden. When you come in it just looks liken an ordinary painting on the inner walls of the old Gas tank. (So it is... More

I expected it to be more spectacular and less reading. It was fairly static and involved quite a bit of stairs. I didn't feel that charging so much to visit was in keeping with what we were looking at i.e. 1945 DRESDEN catastrophe!! I felt betrayed.

Really enjoyed the fantastic exhibition of Dresden 1945. I was quite taken by it, even though it is a piece of art. The true reality in 1945 must have been horrible. The exhibition gave a new perspective in many ways. Would very much like to see it again and also hope to get an opportunity to visit the other panoramic... More

I was really touched with the 1945 Dresden exhibition, really worth to go if you have some extra time in the city.

Did not know what to expect when going. We just wanted to have a good time, see something about history and get to know city better. Through different rooms, interactive panorama and good guidance material this expectations were more than exceeded. Definitely worth going and taking 1-2 hours to discover what Panometer can offer.

Whatever panorama is displayed there, get into the s-bahn to Dresden-Reick, 5 mins walk and be impressed! I went there for "Dresden 1945", a panorama of Dresden after the allied air raid of mid-february 1945...and stayed more than 1h!

I would recommend to visit this place once you arrive Dresden and before exploring the rest of attractions. This place will show you the panoramic view of both day and night of Dresden. Lovin't it

This is my second time going to the Panometer, this time was Baroque Dresden. I took my 2 children age 2 and 5 and they also enjoyed it, especially the 5 year old. It is like a big "Where's Wally/Waldo" picture with details to search for. We know the buildings in Dresden quite well so it was fun to look... More

I was captivated by the spectacle of Asisi's interpretation of Dresden 1945, the bombing of the city during the war and its aftermath. The exhibition also addressed the bombing and destruction of other cities in the conflict. It is a something that young people need to learn how our ancestors both inflicted and suffered destruction. The facility is very impressive,... More
