About this app

Join Daan Schuurmans and discover the history of
The Netherlands. In 18 walks through the city and country he tells you everything about it
how our country – and its inhabitants – became the way they are today.

A pod walk, that is listening while you walk. You go to the starting point,
put in your earphones or put on your headphones, and the app will do the rest. Daan tells
you step by step what happened at the place where you are at that moment
stands. How the residents of that time experienced those events. And
the consequences for our country as we know it today.

Put your phone in your pocket and only take it out at the end of the day
route. Daan knows exactly where you are and tells you where to go
where to look. This way you won't miss any of his fantastic stories from our
history – and the traces that you still see in the landscape.

Daan's stories are suitable for all ages. And with that maybe
the best choice for an active and educational day out. Preferably first
a taste before you hit the road? You can enjoy any walk in the app
listen to pieces. This way you know exactly which route best suits your plans
for the day.

- You download the app and you can hit the road straight away. You have an account
not necessary. No mobile data either, because you can already plan the routes at home
download to your phone. Your GPS will take care of the rest.

- Each walk follows an episode of the television series Het
story of the Netherlands. You can simply walk the routes without the
series to see. Would you like more background information about the
walk? For each route you will find a link with which you can find the corresponding route
episode can be seen on NPO Start.
- The app has a list view of all routes. Would you rather watch it?
a map? The map view shows you which routes are near you
be nearby. Or use the built-in suggestions for your choice.
- The screen is designed so that you can easily read it outdoors. Also
in the bright sun. There is also a dark mode. It's a bit friendlier
the eyes when you navigate through the app at home in the evening.
- Each walk states how long it takes. In minutes, but also in
steps. Handy for your walking or fitness app.
- Not everything completely clear yet? Don't worry, the app has a list
with frequently asked questions. This way you will definitely figure it out.

- We are very curious what you think of the app. From the walks.

This is amazing, but why not an English version? Foreigners like me are also so interested in this experience :(

Beste Diana, wij zouden ook graag een Engelse versie aanbieden, maar daarover is op dit moment nog niets bekend.

Very nice to learn something about the environment during a walk.

Het idee is wel leuk, maar na het lopen van de podwalk Hattem heb ik twee opmerkingen: - Bereiken van een waypoint wordt niet altijd herkend, waardoor het idee van de telefoon in je zak kunnen houden teniet gedaan wordt. - Ik vond de hoeveelheid verhaal weinig in verhouding tot de hoeveelheid lopen. Als je constant wat te luisteren wilt hebben, kun je beter een luisterboek of normale podcast pakken.
