The digital city tour

As a follow-up project to the audio tour of the Hohennagold castle ruins published in March of this year, MAQNIFY was also commissioned with the conception of a digital tour of Nagold's historic old town.

Nagold presents itself with urban flair against a historical backdrop and framed by a varied natural environment. Nagold has a lot to offer: Historical traces through magnificent half-timbered houses, a church tower without a church, small alleys, attractive shops and a varied gastronomy make a stroll through the town a special experience. A walk up to the castle ruins of Hohennagold is rewarded with an enchanting atmosphere and a magnificent view.

With the new audio tour, visitors can now dive deep into Nagold's exciting history and let themselves be drawn into the spell of times long past - entirely at their own pace.

In consultation between MAQNIFY and the city of Nagold with Sarah Leutner, head of the tourism department, and Annika Tittjung, staff member in the tourism department, a total of 24 stations were determined through the historic old town. Judith Bruckner, chairwoman of the Verein für Heimatgeschichte e.V., long-time city and castle guide and author of the Historical City Guide Nagold, wrote an exciting text and its translation in English for each stop. Subsequently, MAQNIFY conceived and set to music an entertaining audio contribution. Impressive visuals from the past and the present round off the tour and lead visitors even deeper into Nagold's stirring history.

Visitors can now access the respective information in German and English on all stations by scanning QR codes, which are attached to the pedestrian pillars in the city centre next to the "Historic City Tour" sign.
