Virtural Reality Application

Take a look around from the historic centre to the Alps; navigate from the surfers at Eisbach to the beer garden at the Chinese Tower. Stroll through Viktualienmarkt and adopt the perspective of a local market seller. Visit the Frauenkirche or surround yourself with modern art at the Pinakothek der Moderne. Watch the sun rise over Munich from the roof terrace of Hotel Bayerischer Hof or enjoy the magnificent views from the roof of the Mandarin Oriental.

Thanks to everyone involved in this project. Together we built the first virtual reality app for a German-speaking city. The head of the Department of Labor and Business, Mayor Josef Schmid:

"Virtual applications are becoming increasingly popular. I am glad that Munich is now at the height of the virtual time with the VR app. Whether in location marketing, business promotion or tourism, the VR app shows how Munich can benefit from new technical applications."

About:

Whether panoramic photos or motion pictures in the 360-degree video, the Munich 360°-VR app offers extraordinary vistas of the city’s highlights which captivate tourists and local Munich residents alike.

Once your mobile phone is placed into a VR headset, the 3D effect is created as each eye sees only one of the two images (similar to earlier stereo photographs or stereoscopy).

More to come!

Right now there are eight places and situations on the VR app for Munich: Eisbachsurfer (one film and two panoramic photos), Viktualienmarkt (two films, one panorama photo), Chinesischer Turm (two films), Bayerischer Hof (two films), Mandarin Oriental (A Panoramafoto), Pinakothek der Moderne (a Panoramafoto), Frauenkirche (a Panoramafoto) and Hofbräuhaus (a panorama photo).
