See the Berlin Wall in AR with new added AR-stories about it's history
Official App for the anniversary "30 Years Fall of the Wall" 2019
THE WALL STORY CAN ALSO BE EXPERIENCED OUTSIDE OF BERLIN!
The Berlin Wall divided a city for decades and fell 30 years ago. Parts of it have barely survived as a memorial.
MauAR does not want this piece of Berlin history to be forgotten by making the division more tangible. Augmented Reality (AR) makes it possible to take you back in time. Look through the camera of your phone and see the Berlin Wall and its history.
THE APP CAN ALSO BE USED OUTSIDE BERLIN
A part of the wall is shown in the place where you are. Also at home. The best visual result is obtained when there is a lot of space, for example outdoors.
WHERE'S THE FORMER EAST OR WEST?
MauAR shows you whether you are in the former east or west. You can see what the course of the wall was like and what gaps it left behind. Your distance to the wall is displayed so that you can experience it with your own eyes.
UNDERSTAND THE STRUCTURE OF THE WALL IN 3D - AT HOME
Use AR to explain the construction of the wall. Switch between the different construction phases. In the original size of the wall you can virtually cross the death strip and change sides.
SEE THE WALL ON THE SPOT
If you are within sight of the former border strip, you can see the wall in its original course. Standing in front of you. In AR. At the original place.
AR FILM: FOLLOW THE STORIES OF EAST AND WEST
Experience a new form of narration: the AR Film. Follow our two leading actors through the decades of division. Andreas from East Berlin, Johanna from West Berlin. Take part in important moments. For example, you can see how they experienced the construction of the Wall.
30 YEARS MAUERFALL
The Berlin Wall fell on November 9, 1989. Follow our main characters through the chapters of history. From the Building of the Wall to the Fall of the Wall. The chapters are gradually published - until the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Ratings and Reviews
I normally do not write review, but this app convinced me to make an exception. Being sent to see exactly where the wall stood some thirty years ago was something brilliant. It is hard to imagine that a mere thirty years ago, there was a wall splitting the city of Berlin in two. The fall of the Berlin Wall was one of the most important events in recent history, and it is of the upmost importance to remember our history.
(There is a review claiming this app is malicious, and that review is patently wrong.)
I did this outside and it was just amazing. To see history from both perspectives as if you are right there. You can almost feel the emotions. It was beautiful. I highly recommend this. I expanded mine to full size and you can walk right up to the wall, vehicles, people and objects to see the detail. At one point, you are in a crowd of protestors. This should be how history is taught.
Super cool app. Used it while visiting Berlin; being able to see where the wall was in real time where ever I went was an extraordinary experience. Would highly recommend for anyone, from history buffs to kids wanting a unique visual experience of Berlin.
