The invention relates to a display device for a vehicle, comprising an image generator for displaying at least one piece of image information (12) on a surface arranged in a vehicle. The at least one piece of image information (12) can be changed dependent on a movement of the vehicle by means of a compensating device designed to at least largely compensate for the movement of the vehicle. For this purpose, the compensating device is coupled to a detecting device, by means of which at least one condition (16, 18) that is present in the surroundings (10) of the vehicle can be detected, wherein the movement of the vehicle can be caused by said condition. The compensating device is designed to change the at least one piece of information (12) in response to a signal of the detecting device. The invention further relates to a method for operating such a display device.
