A short walk along level ground from the car park. The presentation of the painting shows off the magnitude to the full. Although it was opened just before the peaceful revolution in the then GDR ( intended to glorify the country’s existence) it is certainly worth seeing and assessing human failings.

i came here with an artist friend. I am more of a historian. I thought our goal was the site of the closing battle in the unsuccessful Peasants Revolt of 1525. Although this Panorama Museum is sited on the supposed battlefield. The Panorama is much more. The site is in former East Germany and its socialist government commissioned the artist Werner Tubke to paint a panorama of the battle as part of its propaganda looking to the earlier roots of revolution. Tubke did more he painted the scene of the battle but incorporated it in to the wider theme of the Late MIddle Ages so that you van view this whole masterpiece as a philiosphical cycle which includes a wide range of identifiable participants from Christopher Columbus to Luther to the Globalists of Augsburg, the Fuggers and the Welsers. A side room shows shows how. the whole work was accomplished. Only completed in 1987. Ironically 2 years before the regime fell.

Never seen a painting in this format, and with the way it is structured based on four seasons background and the circular panorama, it is a good reminder of the recurrence of life with wars, conflicts and human casualties.

A must see in the region, it is very impressive, tip, take the left hand stairs not the right hand stairs. The painting is much better than expected. It can take a good hour to appreciate the scale and grandiour of this work of art. Take your time and Enjoy...!!!

It is an impressive 360 degree painting of a battle in the peasant war in 1525in Bad Frankhausen. It was painted by a East German painter Werner Tübke and was completed just shortly before the fall of the wall. It is 14 by 123 meters. One can see the influence of Hyronimus Bosch in the painting. There is a lot of symbolism and the guided tour is recommended.

We went to visit this museum today and it was fantastic! To get a feel for the incredible amount of time, planning and resources that went into this artwork is just mind blowing! It is hard to take it all in at once but well worth going along to see the 14m high artwork for yourself

This is an excellent piece of artwork, taking years to plan and paint. It is circular and takes up a huge space. English speakers need to get an English audio which skilfully explains the painting section by section. There is a lot of imagery, with religious and political layers, well explained on audio. This is a masterpiece. The winter scene has similarity to Bruegels paining of the Tower of Babel.
The cafe is ok too- slow service, but nice to enjoy the sun and views with sipping a beer or coffee and cale

Why mention that this is communist art? Because it's not the kind of art that we Americans would picture the East Germans would have painted. It is a glorious painting that takes up an entire building. It is so hard to explain, it has to be seen.

In 2003 we spent a month in Europe and a part of that was in Germany as we wanted to visit some Luther sites. We discovered a bed and breakfast in Bad Frankenhausen and it was by accident that we came upon the Panorama Museum. This is a 360 degree display of a VERY LARGE painting. While we were there it was depicting the peasant wars from the time of Martin Luther. Not only were we in awe of the art, it was wonderful to hear the narration that told the story of history by using the depictions in the painting. If you are within Bad Frankenhausen this is a MUST SEE and if I go back to Germany I would certain stop there again.
