Der Bergdoktor

Installation and VR experience for Madame Tussauds in Vienna

Since December 2018, Madame Tussauds Vienna is presenting the wax figure of Hans Sigl in his role as "Der Bergdoktor" in an unprecedented Virtual Reality Experience: A whole area of the exhibition has been rebuilt into the Tyrolean mountains around the Wilder Kaiser. Visitors can enter the mountain doctor's famous 1976 Mercedes 200 (W123) and let themselves be chauffeured through the picturesque scenery with virtual reality glasses by Hans Sigl in 3D.
