Children’s Tour in German

Even before the invention of the cinema people loved visual illusions. Great Panoramas were built around the world. We keep this tradition and history behind the Bourbaki panorama alive.

All tours are offered in German, English, French and Italian, and other languages ​​on request.

We would be more than happy to provide you with an individual tour according to your wishes.

The Panorama Painting

Standard tour (Duration: 60 min.)

The tour gives an overview of the media form, its history and its architecture. We would be pleased to accompany you on an hour-long journey to the Val de Travers in the Jura. We narrate what happened in the winter of 1871. The painting in the Bourbaki Panorama – a European cultural monument – stands as a symbol of humanity and solidarity. A gripping story that still influences Switzerland and its values.

National Identities

The tour emphasizes the aspects of national identity (Duration: 75 min.):

From the Lion Monument to the Bourbaki Panorama. A history of Switzerland and how Switzerland became a humanitarian Nation.

Two national monuments from seemingly distant epochs. In fact, only 60 years of intellectual history are in between. Switzerland as a special case of national education. A tour of and around the Bourbaki panorama from the conservative backdrop of the Lion Monument to the departure of the nation and the self-discovery as a humanitarian and solidary country, which celebrated its great achievement in the internment of the Bourbaki army in 1871 in an entertaining medium.

Lucerne as a Refuge

(Duration: 120 min.)

The Bourbaki Panorama emerges from its premises with a new guided tour which combines the visit to Bourbaki Panorama Luzern with a tour in the city.

The Bourbaki Panorama has been housed in Lucerne since 1889. The internment of France’s Eastern Army not only gave rise to the creation of this circular painting, but also to the fact that the city of Lucerne is recorded as a hot-spot in the annals of war and internment of refugees; a story that, in fact, continued long after the internment of the Bourbaki troops.

School Tour

We would be pleased to accompany you and your school class on a trip to the Val de Travers in the Jura. We narrate what happened in the winter of 1871.
