A harmless little idea of Cologne’s past. It’s not overpriced and it gives you a perspective of the past. Now when you get on the VR phase my personal choice would be to opt for the original German rather than English. The tour guide recommends...More

The TimeRide is finally a very short trip through a very generic computer designed quarter. It feels like driving through (only) a couple of streets which look like taken from every second computer game. Just a very generic rendered scene.More

We feel sorry, that we could not match up with your expectations. The scene is not generic, but a faithfully researched reconstruction of the Saint Martin's quarter around 1910. In fact, we did create our VR ride with tools that are generally used for creating...More

Interesting trip to Koln's past that takes around 45 minutes. First, a small gallery that allows to compare sights from the end of the XIX century with present day. Then an explanation facing a 1909 Koln map of the virtual ride tram ride with some...More

The whole concept of using VR to show a century old Cologne is fantastic, and is very well executed. Staff is very friendly, she repeated herself in English just for me :)
