Specifically on Spielbudenplatz. Here Friedrich Hermann Faerber one of the first waxworks opened in Germany. Shown was all that was particularly: kings and emperors, giants and dwarves, but also criminals and murderers. Often, the audience was here for the first time get a picture of them - because the press reports appeared at that time rarely with photos. When at the beginning of the 20th Century, the film came up, many of them could no longer claim waxworks in the race for attention and relevance. The Hamburg Panopticon is the only German waxworks from this period, which still exists today. Although the house was destroyed in 1943 by fire bombs and few figures could be rescued. A few years later, a small exhibition was reopened. Since 1959, the Panopticon in the current building, which were built by us in the typical style of the 50s, at home. Today the Panopticon by Dr. Hayo Faerber is passed, the great grandson of the founder. We are a family business in its fourth generation, which continues the tradition of wax image art with passion.
