Full description
Experience a trip through time to Dresden's heyday. Enjoy a fascinating world of panoramas. In 2003 and 2006 respectively, Asisi created the world's largest panoramas in Leipzig and Dresden. Both are in the historically-protected former gasometer. The focus of Yadegar Asisi's 360° Panorama of the Baroque halcyon days of Dresden is the daily life of citizens, shopkeepers, fishermen, servants and craftspeople in the Saxon town. He compresses the time from around 1695 to 1760 into an artistic snapshot of the Baroque era in Dresden. Immerse yourself in the past and see the scenes with historic characters like Peter the Great, Johann Friedrich Böttger, the inventor of porcelain, Johann Sebastian Bach or the court jester Joseph Fröhlich. See the arrival of the Sistine Madonna in 1754. Forgotten everyday moments with woodsmen and washerwomen along the Elbe, as well as sedan bearers, comedians and many more make this a real artistic representation of the era. The night variation also offers a glittering view. On display until 6th of January 2019.

    The tour is recommended. The panorama is just great. Small details, the change between day and night and the noises that make you immerse yourself directly in the world. You expect the picture to come to life and shake hands with people. Simply worth seeing! It is a pity that there are no chairs to sit down and enjoy the panorama for a long time.

    Great alder biscuit

    Before you get to old Dresden, there are small rooms where you can get information about life in the baroque period. Nozzles are nicely designed and interesting. The panorama is like a picture puzzle. I kept discovering different scenes from the Baroque period from different viewing heights. The change between day and night is great, the thunderstorm, etc. a very recommendable experience!
