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 :)

Well worth the money (and your ticket has a voucher for Sion brewery too). The friendly staff are an asset too. The tour takes about 45 minutes and is available in German and English

I'm very familiar with the technology used, and the team here have done an excellent job creating an immersive experience using the current state of the art VR technology, transducers and other effects. We expected to just get the ride, but were pleased and surprised...More

Cologne isn't Rome, Cairo or Paris in terms of sights and history but this attraction manages to make the most of the city's history. In a small locale you see a short and very well-done film about the city's history in very broad lines and...More

Well, as the city of cologne today isn’t one of the most beautiful ones, it’s good to see and to experience how the city looked like 100 years ago… and how easy it is to immerse in this time-warp experience.
