Historical ambience for concerts, conferences or art installations
The Panometer Leipzig offers a backdrop in a class of its own. Originally built as a gas storage facility
– and used as such for almost 70 years – it now serves a very special art form. Since 2003, the artist Yadegar Asisi has been showing his monumental 360-degree panoramas here, providing an insight into different eras of world history
. It is no coincidence that the name Panometer is a portmanteau of panorama and gasometer – Asisi presented his first panorama project here. Currently, the exhibition NEW YORK 9/11 – War in Times of Peace
conveys an impression of the worldwide effects of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. In the past, the Panometer has provided insights into the beauty of the Brazilian rainforest (“Amazonia”), Leipzig during the Battle of the Nations, and even took visitors on an underwater voyage to the Titanic.
But the Panometer doesn’t just host Asisi’s art installations. It has four event areas ranging in size from 128 to 1290 m², offering enough space for all kinds of events.
In addition to trade shows and conferences, the Panometer is also a great place for concerts and presentations. Up to 500 people can fit in the inner circle
, the Panometer’s largest area. All spaces are equipped with modern audio systems and wireless internet. The grounds also include the Arena am Panometer, which at 946 m2 provides the ideal setting for open-air experiences ranging from concerts to corporate events. It’s easy to reach the Panometer and the Arena by public transport: a tram stop and a bus stop are just outside. And there are of course parking spaces for visitors.
