Short facts

The Panometer Leipzig boasts the world's largest 360° panorama with a height of 32 metres. It is housed in a former gasometer.

In the Panometer (a play on the words "Panorama" and "Gasometer") you can immerse yourself in strange and fascinating worlds. The former Gasometer II dating back to 1910 is located in the south of Leipzig and has housed the 360° panoramas erected by the artist Yadegar Asisi since 2003. At a height of 32 metres and a circumference of 110 metres, the Panometer Leipzig immerses you in the largest 360° panoramas in the world and gives you the feeling of being part of this spectacular atmosphere.

Round pictures like EVEREST, LEIPZIG 1813 or the GREAT BARRIER REEF inspired the public millions of times. From the 15-metre-high visitor tower on the inside, the respective panorama scenery reveals itself on a scale of 1:1. The realistic experience is supported by 15-minute day and night variations, which are simulated acoustically with background music and noises as well as various light effects. The accompanying exhibitions provide a preliminary insight into the current topic. At the end, a making-of film explains the history of Yadegar Asisi's panoramas.

Since 9 April 2022, the artist has been showing the new circular painting NEW YORK 9/11. The art project addresses the global impact of the attacks of 11 September. The panorama itself shows Manhattan a few moments before the terrorist acts.

The panoramas and the associated exhibitions are also exciting for children.

Note: Free parking spaces for cars and buses are available as well as a small shop and a café.
