Kampen on Sylt Offers More Than Just Luxury!

What do Thomas Mann, Gerhard Hauptmann, Carl Zuckmayer, Hans Fallada, Max Frisch and Theodor Storm have in common?

They have all been in Kampen on Sylt!

The Kampen.digital app enables visitors to explore an art and hiking trail that focuses on these and other famous cultural figures in an entertaining, challenging and informative way.

The art and culture trail in Kampen features 40 stelae with information on important personalities who have lived and worked in Kampen. As soon as app users approach one of these stelae, they receive a hint via GPS positioning. The app presents multimedia content to match the respective stelae and other points of interest. For example, the avant-garde dancer Valeska Geert shows her expressive art in a rare video.

The app also offers themed 3D animations that are presented in augmented reality (AR) – for example, an animated thatcher explains how a thatched roof, which is characteristic of Kampen, is made.

An interactive hiking map is available for orientation, on which you can find your own position as well as the locations of the stelae and sights.

Even a porpoise can be placed on the beach in 3D.

The app was developed to create an AR experience that conveys the cultural and scenic attractions and characteristics of the location as immersively as possible and makes a wide range of information accessible in an entertaining way.

The special technical features that we implemented for the project include

  • augmented reality scenes,
    among others a thatcher that we modeled and animated
  • GPS-based solutions
  • content management system for apps (database controller),
    which enables the customer, the Kampen Tourist Service, to change app content – such as photos and texts as well as GPS coordinates – live, without the need for a new upload to the app stores.

After opening the app, users can select their destination using the digital hiking map and start their hike. You will experience Kampen on Sylt in a whole new way.

EXCIT3D programs and designs apps at the highest technical level for the tourism, art, culture, science and technology sectors.
