The history team knows the stories
The stories can be linked to ruins, caves, stone piles, buildings, tracks in nature and much more. Perhaps there has been a Viking battle at the site, or a town fire, what happened during the war? The stories can be both exciting, cheerful and sad. But most of all they are good – and the history teams willingly share their stories with us.
Presenting the past in a digital guide
With audio guiding, visitors get an extended experience when they visit the municipality.
Here, the pleasant narration draws the listener into the drama of the past, pictures supplement what they see and a digital map shows the way.
The story starts automatically when they are on the spot and they get the sound straight to their ear when it suits the listener.
Hear the dramatic story!
The first bomb in Molde!
- How many bombs did the Germans drop on Molde?
- How long did they bomb the city?
Advantage for tourists
At the same time that travelers want to experience new places, they also need to feel safe in terms of the spread of infection. With guiding on their own mobile, visitors are not dependent on everything being open and serviced, they can be self-directed and plan their own journeys. Of course, they also choose the time of their journey themselves, so that they can avoid large gatherings of people.
