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