Leipzig: 360° Panorama THE CATHEDRALE OF MONET ticket

3. Leipzig: 360° Panorama THE CATHEDRALE OF MONET ticket

Discover the unique panorama THE CATHEDRAL OF MONET, painted in an impressionist style, and experience the french city of Rouen during the 19th century. The 32 metres high art work by Berlin based artist Yadegar Asisi shows the pretty historical city centre with its monumental Cathedral of Our lady whose facade, almost completely illuminated by the evening sun, throws its orange-red light back across the forecourt onto the already shaded houses. A multifaceted interplay of extraordinary color nuances, shades and incidence of light pours over the entire scenery. The city's residents, including well-known painters and contemporaries such as Vincent van Gogh, Auguste Renoir and Claude Monet, bustle about in the alleys. A 15-minute day and night light change, accompanied by thematical background sounds and music, allows you to merge with the work of art. With THE CATHEDRAL OF MONET Yadegar Asisi is breaking new ground in his oeuvre: for the first time, a panorama measuring 6 x 2 meters was painted in oil on canvas in the Berlin studio before being digitized in high resolution, printed and finally staged in the Panometer Leipzig as a 360° installation. The large panorama has an almost three-dimensional effect: the canvas structure, brushstrokes and an enlarged application of paint through digitization become the defining structure and take the viewer into a 3,500 square metre oil painting. The basis for the panorama was a famous series of panel paintings by Claude Monet, who painted the cathedral in Rouen in northern France several times under different lighting conditions. Asisi used one of these paintings as a starting point to transfer its lighting mood in all its complexity to the spatial painting. The panoramic experience is complemented by an accompanying exhibition and a final film.

It was surprising to see so many pictures by Monet and Mr. Asisi's exploration and development over the introductory exhibition. That alone was impressive. Then the panorama with music and lighting design - impressive. We found it appealing to accommodate the many artists featured in the marketplace. The only point of criticism: the film interview was often drowned out by the loud music.

Really recommended. Funny and informative. Never got boring. A few jokes in between and still get all the information. No boring tape that you have to listen to with headphones. The guide sat on the bus and talked with the microphone and even interacted with the tourists. Never had such a great city tour. Thanks!

An interesting trip through the city of Leipzig with 13 stops where you can get on or off flexibly. The guide was great, with wit, humor and historical knowledge, she personally accompanied us on the bus with a microphone. We can highly recommend the tour!

Humorous, bright travel companion who provided a lot of the history of Leipzig. You see sides of the city that would otherwise remain hidden. The team also seems to enjoy their work. ;-)

Great overview of Leipzig, the city’s history, and its sights. Very knowledgeable guide, though it was sometimes difficult to hear him.
