Photo and description
The Museum "Panorama of Tyrol" is located on the top of the Bergisel mountain near the large ski jump, where the Olympic flame was lit three times in history - the last time in 2002. The hill itself is 746 meters high. It is located at a distance of 2.5 kilometers south of the historic city center, but in the immediate vicinity there is a bus route and a railway.
The main exhibit of the museum is, of course, the famous Tyrolean panorama, completed yet in 1896. It is considered one of the few surviving panoramas created in the century before last. Over the long decades of its existence, this panorama has changed many places and survived even during the Anschluss of Austria by Germany. It was previously housed in an elegant rotunda on the banks of the Inn River in the opposite part of the city, but in 2011 it was moved to the newly opened new museum. The panorama itself depicts the battles of Bergisel during the Tyrolean Wars of Independence in 1809. The Austrian rebels won three battles against the French, but in the last, decisive, they were defeated, and their leader Andreas Gofer, who later became a national hero, was shot.
In addition to this famous panorama, the museum displays many other antiques, curiosities and other artifacts. First, the layout of the museum itself is interesting - it is subdivided into several thematic sections - nature, politics, people, religion. The first section presents stuffed animals common in Tyrol, in the second, for example, you can study old documents, belonging to the emperor Maximilian (beginning of the XVI century). The last two sections are more reminiscent of typical art galleries - here you can see portraits of prominent Tyroleans and masterpieces of religious art, including more modern ones. It is worth noting that the Tyrol Panorama Museum is connected by underground corridors with the neighboring, older Kaiserjeger Museum.
