App: "Gutenberg to go"
The interactive app is aimed primarily at a young audience, which comes closer to Gutenberg's history in two outdoor tours in the Mainz city area. Users are guided to different places where Gutenberg himself lived and worked. With interactive storytelling, including knowledge quizzes and picture memos, the tours through Mainz become a cultural experience. The Gutenberg Museum developed the concept of the app together with "Nexto". Nexto is known for innovations in digital storytelling and sustainable travel solutions. "Gutenberg to go" is now available for download free of charge for Apple and Android smartphones in the App and Play stores.
