Berlin, Munich & Co. – more and more German cities are offering their visitors apps to discover the hot spots and „hidden sights“. Via GPS, geomarks and QR-codes they get an alert about special offers and actions close to them.
Insider tips „on demand“
The free „Going Local Berlin“-app guides the users to over 700 insider-spots. The columns – hidden places, to check out and food + drinks – show them Berlin’s authentic life. Beside some „ready to discover“-tours like those to the „Kräuterhof“ in Reinickendorf, through „Little Venice“ in Spandau or to the „imaginary manufacture“ in Kreuzberg the users can create their own list of Berlin’s sleepers and go on a total individual tour. The integrated navigation guides them to their chosen city-targets. Thanks to the offline-application it’s possible to download all the information like pictures, videos, maps and tips on the mobile phone.
Beyond that there are others apps to support visitors and inhabitants likewise – e.g. the cab-app in Bonn. It shows available drivers close to the user and calculates the estimated time of arrival during the order-process.
Here you find some more apps, which show you different cities with special topics like historical tours or on a detective adventure.
