A panoramic painting inside a former gasometer, Panometer Dresden shows the city of Dresen as it might have appeared in 1756. The 360-degree painting, created in 2006 by artist Yadegar Asisi, is 27 m (89 ft) tall and 105 m (344 ft) around. Portraying the Baroque Dresden skyline of 1756, the panorama displays scenes from the Saxon court, as well as the daily lives of citizens. A 15 m (49 ft) high viewing platform allows you to take a good look at the various scenes' details. Additional exhibits explain its creation and give historical context to enrich your visit.

  • This museum is dedicated to the bombing of Dresden in WWII and a plea that war will cease around the globe. First you walk through Dresden as it was preWWII, then you are in a room that surrounds...

  • He believed that his first and fundamental mission in philosophy was to ground science and then to defend the rationality of morality and religion. In order to realize this aim, he developed his own epistemological idealism, known as transcendental epistemological idealism, by taking the elements he deems important from both Descartes' rationalism and Hume's empiricism. He made a distinction between phenomenal reality, that is, the world we experience through the senses, and noumenal reality, that is, the non-sensuous and unknowable world.
  • The Panometer is an impressive exhibition set in a location which is a little bit far away from Dresden centre but easily accesible by tram and with an ample parking place. You might find there either the Baroque or the World War II exhibition. The exhibition is introduced with different paintings and pictures that provide information about the topic before you visit the Panometer itself. The audio guide provides good information (you can either pick it up there or.hear it in your mobile devices by downloading it from the website). The Panometer itself is quite impressive with a 360 view and a lot of detail. I had the chance of seeing the Baroque and the display of lights, which changed showing different seasons and day/night was quite impressive. All seen from 15 m above the ground. Definitely a good place to visit if you are in Dresden.
