Digital Companion in the Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park

Nobody has to get lost in the wilderness: the Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park app shows nature lovers where they are, the most important contact points and special places. Through videos and a lot of multimedia content, visitors are informed about flora and fauna, but also the national park itself.

A special feature of the app is the “Augmented Ranger”:

At information points at the national park gates and at ranger meeting points, an augmented reality application can be called up by scanning small information boards and an ‘AR ranger’ appears in the camera image. He welcomes visitors and offers the opportunity to take a selfie with the ranger.

Applications can be downloaded in advance in the WLAN so that all functions can also be used if digital data access is limited when hiking in the wilderness. The app is available in German and English. There is also information in easy language and sign language. Other languages will follow.

„The National Park app is a nice addition to our efforts to combine environmental education with experiencing nature. It is helpful and useful, especially in times of pandemics, to bring the beauties of our nature closer to people of all ages.“

Reinhold Jost, Environment Minister of the Saarland
