The panorama of Dresden from the viewing platform on the dome of Frauenkirche.

"A very special attraction of the Frauenkirche is the ascent to the dome and the viewing platform. [...] Visitors make their way up the first 24 metres using a lift. Next, the route upwards is via narrow stairs. Visitors then negotiate a spiralling ramp, which is a stepless spiralling rising walkway that circles the outer dome two and a half times. This section is strenuous: in earlier times it was used as a 'donkey path' and it has a gradient of 14 percent. The visitors make their way via two further stairway sections – one of them a steep ladder stairway – to the 67 meter high viewing platform. There, a unique view over Dresden and the surroundings opens up." (Text from the official page)

If you want to study the view in detail, there are two high-resolution gigapixel available, in southern and western directions.

On the balcony of the 12th-century Baptistry in Pisa, Italy.

"The Baptistery, which as in all the ancient Italian churches, is separated from the cathedral, stands about fifty paces from it full in front. It is raised on three steps, is circular, and surmounted with a graceful dome. It has two stories, formed of halfpillars supporting round arches; the undermost is terminated by a bold cornice; the second, where the pillars stand closer, and the arches are smaller, runs up into numberless high pediments and pinnacles, all topped by statues. Above these, rises a third story without either pillars or arches, but losing itself in high pointed pediments with pinnacles, crowned again with statues without number. The dome is intersected by long lines of very prominent stone fretwork, all meeting in a little cornice near the top, and terminating in another little dome which bears a statue of St. John the Baptist, the titular saint of all such edifices. The interior is admired for its proportion. Eight granite columns form the under story, which supports a second composed of sixteen marble pillars; on this rests the dome. The ambo or desk for reading is of most beautiful marble, upheld by ten little granite pillars, and adorned with basso relievos, remarkable rather for the era and the sculptor than for their intrinsic merit. The font is also marble, a great octagon vase, raised on three steps and divided into five compartments, the largest of which is in the middle. The dome is famous for its echo, as the sides produce the well-known effect of whispering galleries. This edifice, which is the common baptistery of the city as there is no other font in Pisa, was erected about the middle of the twelfth century by the citizens at large, who, by a voluntary subscription of a fiorino each, defrayed the expenses." (John Chetwode Eustace: A Tour through Italy, Vol. II, London 1813).
