Bruegel as a 360° experience
A newly developed 3D tour makes it possible. It allows guests who can't be there in person not only to look at the smallest details of Bruegel's masterpieces but also conveys all kinds of content and background knowledge on the work and life of the world-famous painter, who was born in around 1525/30 in the Netherlands.
Join the interactive tour of the Bruegel Room at the KHM here:
In technical terms, the 3D tour offers every trick in the book: the arrow keys enable visitors to navigate conveniently throughout the room, while even tiny details in the paintings can be made out using the zoom function. Because the quality of the stream makes it possible to observe the masterpieces from right up close. Music specially composed for the 3D room provides the musical setting.
Particular attention is paid not only to the virtual experience of the paintings but also the provision of background information. Clicking on the information point labeled with an "i" takes visitors to many other interesting pieces of information.
Right up close – despite the travel restrictions
