iWebPark: The app as a digital multimedia guide

The digital hiking guide iWebpark, a smartphone application, leads you through the National Park and its sourrounding area with detailed maps, information and stories.

Out in the field, iWebPark provides you with a wide range of information using satellite navigation (GPS), images, audiotext, videos, quizzes and text, and accompanies you on your hikes along several educational trails.

iWebpark is available in German, French and English for iPhone and Android on the Appstore. If you do not have a smartphone, it is possible to rent a device.

Offers outside the SNP: In addition to the technology, there are also developments elsewhere. Along with the much appreciated variety of themes on offer within the National Park, visitors have been able to use the iWebpark multimedia guide to follow two routes outside the Park since summer 2010. One of these is a science trail for children that was developed in collaboration with the WWF in 2009 in an area known as the 'emerald zone' (Smaragdgebiet) behind the ruins of Ardez castle. Smart young scientists will enjoy finding out more about this fascinating protection zone and making interesting discoveries in these ancient surroundings. Can they find the answers to particular questions? For example, why are dragonflies seldom left to live in peace, or how are spiders - such as the wolf spider here in Ardez - useful to humans?
