The Hildesheimer culture and leisure app includes 20 bike tours through the city and district to over 200 cultural and leisure destinations.
A special feature of the app is the rose route with 18 audio documents produced by Radio Tonkuhle. These were geographically integrated into the map and are available as "audio guides".
For Hildesheim, the rose is a symbol of growth and survival. The "millennial rose bush" at the cathedral is known all over the world. According to legend, the city does not go under as long as the "Hildesheim Rose" is in bloom and flourishing.
The "Hildesheim Culture & Leisure App" was created through the cooperation of the Hildesheim district, the city of Hildesheim and Radio Tonkuhle under the leadership of the ADFC Hildesheim.
The free app presents existing cultural and leisure offers and integrates tourist and interesting places in the district. Much emphasis was placed on safe, family-friendly and varied bike tours. Bicycle-friendly places to stay and stop for refreshments have also been integrated and train stations have been integrated.
All details and information are available offline. With an internet connection, direct links to the respective websites can be used for more information, as well as the option of calling directly from the app.
We wish you a lot of fun!
After installing the app, the map data (approx. 80 MB) will be loaded. If your smartphone is connected to a WLAN, this happens automatically. The data can also be downloaded using a cellular connection. To do this, tap the pop-up window to confirm. Please note that this is done at the expense of your data volume.
So that your current position is shown on the map, please confirm that the app has access to your device location. You can now use the app "offline". This means that an internet connection is no longer required. Exceptions: An online connection must be established to access external Internet sites, e-mail and telephone calls.
A detailed description of the tours with lots of information such as length, altitude difference, degree of difficulty and the route with information on POIs (places of interest) can be called up. There are tips and recommendations for each POI. If a suitable tour is found, it can be called up and the starting point appears immediately on the map. Your current position is constantly displayed and updated.
How far it is to the destination is shown by the remaining kilometers at the top of the screen. If you leave the route by turning the wrong way, for example, you will hear a warning tone. Arriving at your destination safely and relaxed is no problem.
Long press on a POI symbol on the map to call up detailed information. These usually consist of a picture, a detailed description, tips and hints, as well as address, telephone number and link to the website, if available. A call can be made with one click or the website can be called up directly, which then provides current and further information.
In order to keep the map clear, content can be thinned out and the display of the POIs can be individually adjusted in the settings. Depending on the focus or application, you can determine what is displayed.
You can find more information on operation in the "Help" menu.
