Thun-Panorama

The artist Marquard Wocher of Basel created the first panorama in Switzerland in 1814. Fascinated by the Bernese Oberland, he composed a cyclorama measuring 38 metres in length, depicting the small town of Thun and its surroundings with a view to the Alps of the Bernese Oberland. Rich in detail this picture takes a look at the daily life in Thun 200 years ago and with its countless stories is a picture puzzle for both the young and the old. Today the panorama is the oldest cyclorama of the world and is a long-term loan by the Gottfried Keller Foundation.

The Thun-Panorama is seasonally open, from March until the End of November.
