Intro

The Thun Panorama was produced in 1814 and was the first Swiss work of its type and the world's oldest surviving example of its genre. The artist Marquard Wocher sketched the 360° panorama while sitting on a roof in the middle of the Old Town of Thun.

The Thun Panorama in Schadau Park is managed by the Thun Art Museum as a deposit for the Gottfried Keller Foundation. This panoramic view of the city of Thun produced between 1809 and 1814 is fascinating not only because of its size but also because of its charm. Even today, its unusual perspective affords viewers an intimate gaze into living rooms, classrooms and streets. Like a gigantic picture book, some 7.5 metres high and 38 metres long, the painting depicts the town’s morning time hustle and bustle in great detail.

On a public tour the guide talks about the backgrounds of the panorama by Marquard Wocher and discusses the turbulent history and the many details of the painting.
