Augmented reality at the ruins: xpedeo shows the virtual reconstruction of the fortress castle from the visitor's perspective.

2012

40 xpedeo media guides are implemented into the tour guidance since the opening in September. Our project was chosen by the state of Rhineland Palatinate.

The media guide shows the virtual reconstruction of the fortress castle from the visitor`s perspective. xpedeo follows the visitor´s perspective and shows exactly how they used to look.

Information layers are localized using GPS. A virtual 360 degree panorama of the castle appears on the site of the ruins, in its original Renaissance splendor. xpedeo follows the visitor´s perspective and shows exactly how they used to look. The virtual 3D reconstructions are augmented in the media guide by film sequences and an interactive terminal. The 3D reconstructions were made by Archimedix.

Visitors can enjoy their journey of discovery through the old ruin in German, English, French and Dutch.

For nearly 800 years the fort dominates the Hardenburg Isenachtal above the western part of the city of Bad Durkheim. Winding vaults, corridors and towers are one of the largest and most impressive ruins of the Palatine. The impressive remains of walls of several successive stages of expansion still bear witness to the greatness of the residence of the earls of Leininger. Besides the fortifications, the parts of this prestigious "castle" from the early Renaissance are primarily of increasing interest. Hardenburg Castle
