View on the river Pleiße with on the left the Pleißenburg at the Asisi's panoramic display "Leipzig 1813" in the Panometer in Leipzig, Germany.

On a 3500 square-metre surface, the scenery of Leipzig unfolds in the direct aftermath of the Battle of the Nations in 1813.
From the roof of St. Thomas Church, the visitor follows the events from the perspective of the beset citizens. A total of 600.000 soldiers from all across Europe fought for four days until Napoleon's campaigns of conquest on the continent were finally brought to an end. Leipzig is directly affected as the Panorama conveys in striking images. The streets are crowded with throngs of citizens, soldiers, those who fled and are stranded. Amidst the daily routine and all the chaos, the people of Leipzig care for countless wounded in makeshift hospitals and bury some 100.000 dead.

The Leipzig Panometer is an attraction in Leipzig, Germany. It is a visual panorama displayed inside a former gasometer,
accompanied by a thematic exhibition. The Panometer was created in 2003 by the Austrian-born artist Yadegar Asisi,
who coined the name as a portmanteau of "panorama" and "gasometer". He opened another Panometer in Dresden in 2006.
