One of the popular tourist attractions of Leipzig, Asisi Panometer takes you on a virtual tour to the historical past of Leipzig. Step inside the studio and you will see that it is a visual panorama displayed inside a former gasometer, accompanied by themed based exhibition. The concept was introduced by a famous Austrian artist, named Yadegar Asisi. The gasometer inside the Panometer is of 57 meters diameter and of 49 meters height that includes a cupola with lantern. Later in 2005, it was renovated according to Asisi’s panoramic display. Finally, a glass foyer was added where now the restaurant is situated.
The striking feature of the Panometer is its large pictures which are nearly 105 meters in circumference and about 30 meters high. Today, these pictures are said to be the largest one, all around the world. At present, the exhibition celebrates 200th anniversary of the Battle of Leipzig, depicting the city during the war time. Previously, themes like Mount Everest, Ancient Rome and Amazonia were displayed in the exhibition.

After reading the other reviews about the exhibition I really wanted to like it, and I did, but only for 90 minutes. This is because it was 70 minutes to do "everything", read all of the text, watch all of the video clips, do the riddle-quiz with my kids and be in the main hall for quite a while. For the entrance fee I think there needs to be more content, such as more stories from the people involved in the design and construction of the ship(s) and other great feats of the time.
An unusual art form that combines documentary, painting, photography, stage lighting, etc. The whole thing is really cool. Slightly pricy in my opinion and the current exhibition (Titanic) is not very exciting. Bring your own binocular so that you don't have to rent one.
We saw the project "Titanic" of Yadegar Asisi: amazing! You can see the ship wreck in a huge panoramic photo of 360 degrees and you can even borrow binoculars to observe the smallest details like suitcases and plates.
It was my random visit last year in Panorama and I didn’t expect that it will become so impressive and informative experience . It was on titanic theme. Started with describing about universal material (steel) it’s development and importance . Then there was huge size actual engineering drawings of all titanic decks, details on construction of Titanic , history about shipping company, ppl involved in construction, their quotes and then the reason of failure/crash. And at the end a huge Panoramic pictures crashed ship in the sea. There was little souvenirs shop and I bought a poster of Panoramic view of old/historic Rome.
Great place to visit, not only for kids. Bilingual explanation makes it more tourist-friendly, as not everyone knows German so well. Exhibitions change, so you can visit on multiple occassions. I would also recommend watching the film at the very end of the exhibition. Presents "the making of..." and contains the interwiev with the author, who explains the idea behind...
