Description

The Berlin Wall divided East and West for 28 years, two months and 28 days. It cut the city in two, ran through buildings, interrupted streets and tore apart families, friends and couples. But where exactly did the Wall run?

The iPad app 'The Berlin Wall HD' gives a detailed answer. An interactive map in the app shows the exact location of the Wall. Photos, audio and video clips and texts about the respective site are stored at historically important locations between the Brandenburg Gate and Potsdam Square. A free data package with more information on historically important sites throughout Berlin and Potsdam can be downloaded in the app. The app serves both as an interactive travel guide on the spot and as a general source of information.

Functions:
- map showing the location of the Wall and sites of interest
- suggestions for Wall tours
- filtering option for historical sites, escapes, traces of the Wall, exhibitions, memorials and border crossings
- the optional Discovery Mode tells you when a historical site is nearby - personalised tours
- directions to find sites of interest
- public transport connections

The app is based on the website chronik-der-mauer.de and is a joint project by the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung, Deutschlandradio and the Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung Potsdam e.V. "The Berlin Wall" was awarded with the "Politikaward 2011", "digita 2012" and the "Comenius-EduMedia-Siegel 2012".

Please note:
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. (This is used for Discovery Mode.)

Absolut topp !!!

Diese App porträtiert ein Stück trauriger deutscher Geschichte in guter Qualität und sehr umfangreich. Ob Mauerverlauf auf der Karte oder historische Plätze, die mit umfangreichen Texten versehen oder mit Audio oder Video untermalt sind, man kann sich damit stundenlang informieren. Dazu ist alles sehr übersichtlich und ansprechend strukturiert. Ein Muss für jedermann, dazu auch noch gratis! Laden!

offlinetauglich...

... ist die app leider nicht. das wäre allerdings sinnvoll, wenn man z.b. mit der app den mauerverlauf ablaufen wollte.

Geniale Geschichtsaufbereitung

Wer die Mauer nicht kennenlernen musste, kann mit dieser App eine Menge nachträglich sehr gut aufbereitet erfahren.
Besonders die Tourenvorschläge sind hervorragend umgesetzt worden.
Viele Zusatzinformationen sind abrufbar.
