This is a converted gasometer. They painted the inner walls with a 360° view of Rome during emperor Constatin (312 AC), with zillions of people. The sound and light shows covers 24h in a few minutes (you see the sunrise and sunset light). I spent...More

This is the site of an old gas storage building made into a Panarama of Ancient Rome. Lots of climbing of stairs to take in the detail of the artwork, with phenomenal details. It cycles through the day and night and exhibits tremendous perspective. The...More

The gasometer was really fun; we went to see the Rome exhibit, which was awesome (look for the three "mistakes" purposely made by the artist). We spent the equivalent of 1 week there - really enjoyed seeing it at all the levels, amazing how different...More

Had no idea what to expect when my German cousins said we were going to the Gasometer. When they described it as 360-degree panorama, it conjured up memories of a long ago visit to the Cyclorama at Gettysburg, but this was a panorama on steroids!...More

This is an art installation by Yadegar Asisi, a 360 degree panorama of Ancient Rome in 312 AD, built inside an old gasometer. It is a huge mural that absolutely captures your imagination, particularly with a wonderful soundtrack that is synchronised with the lights that...More

To an ageing Brit the notion of a retired 1912 gasometer re-branded as an art form is mad. Rising in the lift to the viewing platforms, my guide made me turn away as the lift doors open so that I could take in the installation....More

Do not miss this one, even if you have to drive a few extra km´s. One tip, go straight to the top and look down on the scene. Go around a few times and you might find a bottle of beer which was placed there...More

When in Pforzheim, especially during the winter months, your list of possible activities that won't bore you to death are extremely limited. The panorama in the Gasometer is a cool alternative. At first I thought you would just be shuffled into the panorama and that...More

When I first heard of this type of artist display I was very sceptical, but thought I will try it once. This display was innovative, refreshing and absolutely eye opening, it made you feel like you were in the middle Ancient Rome. What a great...More

An interesting and different place to visit and explore. Situated on the bank of the Enz river in an old gas tank, is a work of art. "A day in Ancient Rome".
