This oil painting, covering 1,000 square meters of canvas, depicts the Battle of Bergisel of August 13, 1809. Under the leadership of Andreas Hofer, the Tirolean farmers fought heroic battles to defend their homelands against the superior forces of the French and the Bavarians. The panorama painting is an interesting portrayal of Innsbruck at around the turn of the century. Apart from scenes of the battle you see a view of "old Innsbruck" and the town area of Wilten. The naturalistic historical painting was made by Michael Zeno Diemer (1867-1939).
