Full description
Travel back in time to the vibrant, everyday life of Frankfurt in the 19th century. Use virtual reality to adopt the role of a venerable merchant, just as if you had been there yourself. During your time-traveling experience, you will accompany the fictitious businessman, Theodor Riedel, through Frankfurt’s history at three exciting stops.  Start at the grocery store and learn about the trading city during the colonial period. Immerse yourself in the store's hustle and bustle, learn about the fragrant spices and exotic goods, and admire the shop's interior. Then, make a virtual visit to a private library. Learn about the ideas and ideals of the local citizens in the setting of a family's study.  Finally, take the virtual reality carriage ride, the highlight of your journey back in time to 1891. Board the carriage with Theodor Riedel and experience the charm of the flourishing trading city. With your VR headset, enjoy a 360° panoramic view of medieval half-timbered buildings and sublime Wilhelminian-style architecture. Along your virtual journey, you will also accompany Theodor on his own personal day of fate: find out if he can save the family’s legacy or if he will lose everything. Whether ruin or triumph, uncover the answer on your journey through time.

There are three parts to the experience, all set in 1891, year of the Technical Exibition in Frankfurt. In the first you're in a shop where you are taught about trade at that time, in the second there's an audio video story of the city and the third is the VR glasses one, where you take a trip throught the city. Pay attention during booking if you want the English version, but it's only available on same slots. The VR part can always be set in English, though.

Meine Brille fiel nach 5 Min. aus, alles war schwarz. Dann musste ich mich umsetzten, diese Brille war total unscharf, die nächste auch. Wahrscheinlich weil sie nicht fokussiert war, das man am Anfang machen musste. Die Zeitreise ist sehr interessant, leider war es für mich, durch die Unterbrechungen, nur bedingt schön.

Die authentische Darstellung der Frankfurter Innenstadt war schon überraschender Weise sehr gut. Wenn man die Kutschfahrt erlebt hat und anschließend durch Frankfurt geht oder fährt und an markanten Punkten vorbeikommt, kann man Teile der Stadtgeschichte einfacher nachvollziehen.
