The Panometer in Leipzig

Enjoying the last days of the summer in Leipzig, or more aptly, the first days of autumn.
When you live in the centre of the city, you can't really feel the change of the seasons. From my window I can't see green leaves turning red or yellow but the sky is overcast and the people are already wearing more clothes.

In the beginning of September I had some visitors and it was a good opportunity for me to become a tourist once more. Together we went to the J.S. Bach Museum of course and to the Round Corner Museum where the Stasi Archives are kept.

I was curious to see what the Panometer was all about and I must say I wasn't disappointed at all. It is the ex-Gasometer of the city which during the last years is serving as a space for the panoramic exhibitions of the artist Yadegar Asisi. It was fantastic to be transported in the year 1813 when Leipzig was the theatre of the battle of the nations. From an observation deck visitors had the possibility to see how Leipzig looked on the aftermath of this great battle between Napoleon and his allies and the rest of Europe.
