The platform of the Innsbruck cyclorama

The platform is an ideal gathering place for eager viewers.

Visitors pass through a dim hallway to reach the platform in the middle of the rotunda. Once there, they can move around freely to get the whole picture. The only thing that separates them from the cyclorama itself is a low wooden wall about seven meters (22 feet) from the painting. At that distance, the human eye can no longer detect the brush strokes or the texture of the canvas.
