About
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"

Panometer is really interesting historical monument. Unfortunately by the time of our visit most of the entrances were closed so it was really hard to access the area. You can’t go inside the building because it’s closed and full of pigeons.

11,50€ for a couple of pictures and paintings, which aren’t very impressive, is just not worth it. Was really excited but got badly disappointed.
Waste of a beautiful building.

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

ASISI is true panorama artist and unique of its kind ; after his previous work over the AMAZONE , Himalaya and Antartica this GARDEN panorama is absolutely an impressive artistic work

We weren't quite sure what to expect as we've never visited on of these before. The theme was 'Carola's garden' which depicted a garden in various stages. The experience was quite amazing! The colours and the concept was unforgettable. with a different perspective portrayed as we climbed higher up the steps. Could have stayed there all day. Highly recommended.

We visited the Carolas Garden exhibit and were rather disappointed.

The paintings weren’t placed in any order, content nor art type.

A lot of insects in life size forms were too much for non insects lovers like myself.

The film, which explained a lot, was placed at the end and was overtaken by the accustik of the voice from the 360 display. There was no possibility to sit and the light from the exit made you sort of want to leave sooner than ever.

Unfortunately overpriced and disappointing this time round.

This building reminded me of the old Gas Works at the Oval Cricket Ground in London and has a similar looking building next door to it called the Arena Panometer. They are both circular brick buildings with the Arena ;having a mesh glass roof and has an open gate where you could wander inside and get photos. The Panometer itself is an expensive experience that I did not do as it's 11,50 Euros for entry. I suggest you do some reading about this place before venturing to it at that price.

I saw the 'Carola's Garden' exhibition - the massive panorama art by Yadegar Asisi and the associated gallery were really interesting. I would love to go back and see future exhibitions at the Panometer. The entrance fee was a little pricey compared to other attractions in Leipzig, but I think it was worth the cost.

Fantastic art, really enjoyed the main room, it’s worth spending time studying it all from the top floor and moving round the platform as the lighting changes - would definitely recommend, lovely little cafe for hot drinks too

A bit of a trek from the Leipzig city centre, it takes a little time to get there and back. I did not mind the entrance fee and the Panoramic picture is impressive. The official exhibition which has toured has more information and better value for money. If you were short on things to do worth a see but not at the expense of other activities.

€11.50 for one photo! Way overpriced and not inspiring at all. I've had much better experiences from free art galleries. Tourist trap!

Es ist ganz teuer es lohnt sich nicht. €3-€4 wären genug zu behazhlen.
