Download the app “Gottardo 2016” and discover the Gotthard Base Tunnel in virtual reality. Experience travelling through the tunnel with fascinating interactive features such as a virtual recreation of the journey through the mountain or a 3D sightseeing flight over the Saint-Gotthard Massif. Or get to work and dig through the 57-kilometre long Gotthard Base Tunnel yourself.
The virtual Gottardo experience:
You can enjoy these fun virtual reality features:
1. Direttissima: Fly over the Gotthard and discover the tunnel and region from high above
2. Race: Which route over the Gotthard is the fastest? Follow the race between the old railway line, the road and the new Base Tunnel from a bird’s eye view.
3. Gallery: Visit the Gotthard Base Tunnel from within on an impressive virtual tour.
We recommend using Google Cardboard to experience the virtual reality features in 3D. Google Cardboard is a holder made from cardboard that turns your smartphone into a pair of virtual reality glasses, allowing you to enjoy the full Gottardo VR experience in 3D. You can also always use the app’s virtual reality feature without a Cardboard – simply choose the corresponding feature in the app.
The tunnel game:
Re-enact the tunnel’s construction and dig through the Gotthard Massif. The more money you earn on the build, the better the tools you can buy to make even faster progress. And you’ll learn some useful facts about the project of the century more or less as you go along.
