A Panorama of the Alps

The exhibition  imparts background information to the panorama of Thun in four sections. The main protagonist and creator of the panorama, Marquard Wocher, is presented in the first place. Who was he, who undertook the painting of the first cyclorama of Switzerland? Where and how was the panorama of Thun created and what is the meaning of the term “panorama”? Playfully and diversely the exhibition illuminates the background story of the oldest surviving cyclorama in the world. Pictures, sketches, notes, objects and digital reconstructions guide the visitors through the various rooms.
