Augmented Reality

With the advanced Augmented Reality technology, the user's real world is enhanced by interactive digital information. The information and the virtual objects are added to the real world and superimposed on it.

To enjoy the visit, you must have a smartphone with camera, compass and GPS. Download the free application LAYAR, an Augmented Reality browser. It is available on the App Store and Google Play Store (formerly Android Market) or via QR-Code. The tourist office will tell you how to download the application to your mobile and start your visit to the town.

If you already have the LAYAR application installed, specify the town you are visiting or use the QR-Code.

Choose your language and route(s) and point your mobile in the direction you want to go. It will show you the sites of interest found in that direction and give you all the up-to-date information. Select each site to see how to get there, listen to audio guides, consult the telephone number and access the website with more information (opening times, tickets, guided tours, etc.).

The icons on the map help you identify churches, museums and monuments to organise your visit better.
