Since 2003 Yadegar Asisi has impressed millions of visitors with his 360° panoramic pictures. In the Leipzig Panometer one such picture has been exhibited and admired for the past 10 years. The actual picture "Leipzig 1813" captivates with its size of 3.500 m² alone; it is 32 m high and 110 m wide. The upper parts of the picture can be easily observed thanks to a 15 m tall observation platform.
A great number of individual scenes are represented, all of which together form a large all-around image and thus give extraordinary insights about Leipzig around the time of the Battle of Nations. Realistically portrayed and with surprising detail, the picture allows impressions about the life and suffering of the population around 1813 to sink unforgettably into the memories of every visitor.
In-between the Leipzig architecture of the 18th and 19th century the people of the city are in turmoil as they try to cope with the consequences of the war and with the many soldiers that are gathering in the city. Even the feelings of Napoleon and his supporters can be spotted by the Panometer's visitors.
The picture is astonishingly life-like because of its supporting background music. Day and night scenes alternate every 15 minutes, which makes the exhibition all the more exciting.
An accompanying exhibition informs every visitor comprehensively about the portrayed history of the city. A documentary-style "Making of..." furthermore explains the creation of the Panorama picture. Public tours take place daily at 11:00am and 2:00pm and have to be paid for on-location.
The Panometer can be visited at the following times:
- Tuesday - Friday from 10:00am to 5:00pm
- Saturday, Sunday and on holidays from 10:00am to 6:00pm
- Closed on Mondays
