Augmented Reality-App

The AR app "Cold War Berlin" makes the history of the tank confrontation at Checkpoint Charlie tangible in three dimensions. Using a smartphone or tablet, a true-to-scale 3D model of the border crossing can be visualized at any location. From the construction of the Wall to the confrontation in 1961, the Friedrich/Zimmerstraße crossing can be displayed from different angles. Historical photos, films and radio reports complete the offer.
