World of Panoramas: Dresden's Baroque Era

1. World of Panoramas: Dresden's Baroque Era

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.

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 669 reviews

We exchanged the vouchers for tickets with a very friendly employee directly at Dresden main station without queuing. Despite the Pentecost weekend, the museums were not overcrowded and thanks to the ticket we were able to get in everywhere without waiting. We visited the Mathematics/Physics Salon and the Old Masters Picture Gallery and the various rooms of the Residential Palace including the tower. It was a wonderful day and the price of the tickets was definitely worth it, especially since they entitle you to one-time use per museum for two days. You can also split the sightseeing over two days. The most important exhibitions for us were free. If you want to see more, you have to pay extra.

We were in Dresden for 3 days and wanted to move around there without a car. With the 3-day ticket we were well equipped and could commute back and forth through the city.

City Card is a recommendation because you can get through the entire city without stress. Just get on no matter what, bus or train and off you go. Plus more perks.

Dresden is very well equipped with public transport connections. You can go anywhere. Depending on where you live, you don't need 3 days.

It is worth having this card, because you do not have to
