THE SALZBURG PANORAMA 1829

The cycloramic picture painted between 1826 and 1829 by Johann Michael Sattler depicts the City of Salzburg and its environs. Sattler chose a sunny autumn afternoon around four o’clock, as we see on all turret clocks and sundials.

The picture is striking for its topographical precision, above all in the built-up areas of the city. All the window axes, chimneys and roof forms of the buildings exactly match reality. On closer perusal, we also see a great many people of different social classes and occupations employed in all kinds of activities. Only the landscape above the door opening is fictional; Sattler fantasised this, otherwise he would have had to miss out a part of the city (around Nonntal) in the area of the door (which was enlarged later).
