Almost everyone knows them: The brown information boards on the motorways, which refer to tourist attractions and special features in the region.
But most of the time they just race past you. This changes with the project of the company "Magnify" from Emmendingen.
Thanks to modern, digital technology, the company wants to make interested drivers aware of the sights along the route - via automatically played, short audio files.
On the A8 near Pforzheim you will find the sign for the Reuchlinhaus. But Pforzheim has even more to offer. The app tells about various sights such as the gasometer, the Bertha-Benz monument, the Wallberg, the jewellery museum and the golden gate.
