The app offers five tours: three walking tours, one bicycle tour and one tour with the S-Bahn. Each tour has stops that can be chosen on the list or map. The location of each stop is shown with a current photograph. At each stop, witnesses talk about their experiences. Documents, photographs and background texts offer further information. For using the German version of the app, change the language setting of your device.
