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.

The waiting steps are modest. A cloakroom / locker is missing. The introduction in the grocery store should be played in a more captivating and engaging way, linguistically authentic. Voice from the off often speaks in parallel. The study room is very sterile. Here the viewer is left alone. Noises and smells could offer more authenticity here. The journey in the carriage is unfortunately accompanied by explanatory technical explanations / words to "boarded" passengers.

It was a pity that our 7 year old grandson could only see the event blurred. The helmet was not properly adjusted. We couldn't hear that he wanted that set right. Somebody should pay attention at the beginning if a smaller child is present. He was very sad about it.

great experience and we saw a lot of old Frankfurt. The staff were super nice, and their clothes were adapted to the age. Any time
