The Panometer Dresden is located in a former gas storage tank of local power supplier SachsenEnergie from the 19th century. It became the second permanent exhibition venue of Yadegar Asisi’s panoramas in 2006.
In 1880, the former gas holder was built from sandstone and supplied the growing city of Dresden with city gas until its decommissioning in 1973. It was completely converted for the panorama exhibition and is a prime example of how industrial monuments can be used sustainably today.
Experience impressive demensions first hand: The eaves height of the former gas holder measures 24 metres on the outside, while the dome inside is 39 metres high.
