The Tyrolean Panorama was officially opened on March 12th with representatives of the Land Tirol, Southtirol and the district of Trento. Consul Dr.Traweger attended the official opening as well as a special reception hosted by Governor Günther Platter.
Facts: Due to the essential relocation of the gigantic panoramic painting, the “Riesenrundgemälde”, and the new construction of the adjoining museum, a new concept could be realized on the Bergisel hill. For Beate Palfrader, Tyrolean Minister for Culture, the new name “Das Tirol Panorama” represents this complete concept: “Nestled in the historic surroundings of Bergisel, Das Tirol Panorama offers a permanent exhibition besides the Riesenrundgemälde and the Kaiserjäger Museum (museum of the Tyrolean Imperial Infantry) with impressive exhibits on Tyrol’s past covering the subjects of nature, people, religion and politics.” The Bergisel hill enjoys a new architecturally successful attraction with a fantastic outlook and panoramic view of the Tyrolean capital. It has created both a new meeting place and a destination for all Tyroleans in the south of Innsbruck as well as a new tourist highlight for guests and visitors, bringing culture and sport together. In the new building on the Bergisel visitors embark on an exciting journey through major stages of Tyrolean history and cultural history and on a search for the “myth of Tyrol”. The Tyrolean struggle for freedom – captured on the 1,000 m² gigantic panoramic painting – and its impact on the land and people, is brought closer to visitors through a variety of facets.
