I was a little confused by the description of the Amazonia Panorama because that has now been replaced with a Panorama called Leipzig 1813. I am glad I visited as it was an interesting experience. Firstly you walk through an historical overview of the city of Leipzig at that time - there were plenty of English translations. Then you enter... More

My friends who live in Leipzig insisted that I visit the Panometer. I'm so glad I did. Before entering, there is an excellent history of Leipzig and its background as a trade center. The Panometer is a 360 degree reproduction of what the city looked like after the Battle of Leipzig in 1813 (against Napoleon's troups). The lights rotate so... More

Ok, I will be honest: we did not go inside... We thought that EUR 11,50 per person was too much to ask for to go see a cilindrical painting (I know I am being sarcastic). However, the re-use of the original gas holding buildings is impressive, and I love seeing these historic buildings being preserved.

The artist presents a brief history of Leipzig leading up to the Napoleonic invasion; the whole thing is very well done. Even the 'making of' video at the end is worth watching.

I recommend everyone to go and visit this exhibition. It is created with a lot of passion and the technical execution is very impressive. It is worth to go there for all ages. It is a nice variation compared to all classical sightseeings in the city.

and the panorama is indeed stunning. No need to rent the binoculars for 2 euros though, they are pretty useless.

Excellent display in a disused gasworks. After a somewhat dry entrance with writing in both German and English the main 360 degree pamorama exhibition has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Also, interesting video with English subtitles showing the project from conception to the construction process. It is truely amazing and well worth a visit if you are in... More

Entering the first part of exposition, I was confused and actually I though it is again a "big nothing", some historical information about the city, some pictures...However entering the main room with 360° picturing a day of battle of nations at Leipzig in 1813. Only possibility to describe it is to see it.
