1. A device for sensing and displaying the surroundings to the rear and/or side of a motor vehicle (1), having a first apparatus (3) for generating images of the optically sensed surroundings (A) to the rear, having one or more further apparatuses (2) for generating images of the optical surroundings to the side (B, C) of the motor vehicle (1), having a display apparatus (6) which is configured to represent images or image excerpts of the first apparatus and/or of the further apparatuses (2, 3) in partial regions (T1, T2), and a control apparatus (5) which is configured to select the images or image excerpts and assign them to the partial regions (T1, T2), characterized in that the images or image excerpts are selected as a function of the signals of a travel direction indicator (7) and/or of the signals of a sensor (8) which represent the steering angle, and said images or image excerpts are assigned to the partial regions (T1, T2) which may be variable in terms of their horizontal extent depending on the steering angle in order to provide a dynamic composite image which is composed of image sections with dynamically adaptive variables.
