THE TIROL PANORAMA with the Kaiserjägermuseum takes a close look at the “Tyrolean myth” in all its contradictions and fascination.
It houses the largest work of art in Tyrol: the Innsbruck Giant Panorama. The panorama painting shows the Tyrolean fight for freedom on 13 August 1809 in a breathtaking 360-degree view over an area of almost 1,000 m².
The “Schauplatz Tirol” exhibition tells stories about the people, their religion, nature and politics with exciting, surprising and sometimes bizarre exhibits. An exhibition area with objects from the holdings of the Tyrolean Imperial Rifles Museum traces the eventful history of the Imperial Rifles.
THE TIROL PANORAMA is connected underground with the Kaiserjägermuseum. As the regimental museum of the Tyrolean Kaiserjäger, it provides an insight into Tyrol’s military history from the 18th to the 20th century.
THE BERGISEL – A PLACE STEEPED IN HISTORY
The museum ensemble is located on the Bergisel, within walking distance of the ski jump. More than 200 years ago, the 746-metre-high hill was the scene of a legendary battle in which Tyrolean freedom fighters put to flight a Bavarian army under French command. Today, this place is a popular excursion destination in the south of Innsbruck with a fantastic panoramic view over the provincial capital and onto the Nordkette. The Panorama Loop is part of the overall ensemble at Bergisel. The approximately 2.2 km long trail starts at the museum and runs around the Bergisel. The circular walk impresses with its diverse views of the city and nature and also builds a bridge between history and the present.
