- Marvel at hundreds of square-feet of spectacular panoramic artwork by renowned artist Yadegar Asisi, in the unique exhibition space of a converted gasometer
- See the beautiful Baroque architecture of the Dresden skyline of 1756
- Or embark on a journey into the immediate aftermath of the Allied bombing campaigns, which caused the firestorm of 1945
This exhibition focusses on the themes of war and destruction as a result of the devastating air strikes on Dresden in February 1945. The decimated city scene is depicted as it looked in the immediate aftermath of the bombing, and stretches out from the Town Hall Tower. Flames and columns of smoke can still be seen in many of the countless ruined houses. Victims, as well as survivors covered with layers of ash who sought refuge during the catastrophe, are discernible amidst the apocalyptic, dystopian landscape.
Do regular-sized paintings leave you feeling underwhelmed? Look no further than Panometer Dresden! This converted gasometer building is home to two immense panoramic paintings. The first, Baroque Dresden: Myth of the Royal City of Saxony depicts the Dresden skyline in 1756. The other, Dresden 1945: Tragedy and Hope of a European City, shows the city in ruins after the allied air raids, which resulted in the firestorm of 1945.
