A trip to Innsbruck would not be complete without taking time to visit the famed Das Tirol Panorama. Located on the south side of the city, this museum provides visitors with the ideal venue to learn more about the rich history of the area and to explore local culture and fine art in more detail. The museum is an architectural masterpiece in its own right, and it also is filled with numerous exhibits that provide visitors to Innsbruck with a wonderful way to learn more about the area.
One of the most interesting and popular exhibits at Das Tirol Panorama takes visitors on an exploration of the “myth of Tyrol.” The history of the area is explored in detail in many exhibits, and these feature displays covering the reign of Emperor Maximillian, as well as exhibits focused on how religion has shaped the local culture. Several popular paintings and frescoes are also on display here, including “The Battle of Bergisel.” Other exhibits are more whimsical in nature and feature displays like a cable car gondola and various stuffed animals.
With a tour of Das Tirol Panorama, visitors will want to stop and admire the beautiful architecture of the building itself as well as of the panoramic view of the city offered from several locations in the building. Those who are planning to visit Das Tirol Panorama should review hours of operation and should consider visiting the museum during non-peak hours due to the popularity of the museum. On-site parking as well as a museum café are available for visitors’ convenience.
