Description:

Located on the premises of the Leipziger Stadtwerke, the Panometer Leipzig...

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"

We always go here when visiting Family in Leipzig, and they've a new panorama. The new Titanic one isn't the best we've seen. The pre-exhibition adds little different to any titanic exhibition (such as the excellent one in Belfast), and the panorama itself lacks the lots of small scenes and details that have made previous ones such an absorbing viewing.

If you like learning new facts then you will enjoy this place. I went to the exhibition about the Titanic. I enjoyed how the information was delivered; the facts were interesting and well- written. Reading about the historical context in which the Titanic disaster happened was definitely a plus. Also, some of the photographs were stunning, highly contributing to the... More

I have been to the real great barrier reef and was amazed. Now I have been to Asis's Great Barrier Reef and was equally amazed. The exhibition provides a feast for your senses: the incredible visuals accompanied by sound and music make for a very memorable experience. There is also a wealth of information about the reef and all of... More

We where in Leipzig looking for something to do and Panometer was recommended to us, it did not disappoint. Walking up the tower and seeing the reef from different level at different times of the day was truly an amazing experience. We spent just under 2 hours here.

The exhibition boards were informative. However, the main exhibition was too distant to make you experience deeply when you stand on the deck. Also the crowds and noise disrupted the atmosphere a lot.

On a dull and rainy day visit the Panometer. We experienced the Great Barrier Reef ! Really well worth going and having a look. The lighting amazing. You feel as if your swimming with the divers under turtles amongst shoals of fish and not too far from the next shark! You see the under water changing all through the day... More
