From passion play to panorama
Just as the crucifixion of Christ is part of the Passion Play, the panorama also shows it in its own unique way. The Jerusalem Panorama in Altötting is a must-see sight! It is the only historical monumental circular painting in all of Germany and one of three panoramas of the crucifixion worldwide. The panorama is a total work of art consisting of the painting, the architecture of the rotunda and the set design behind the scenes, and thus enables the work of art to be illuminated only with daylight in order to make the landscape appear as realistic as possible.
