The LRE Foundation offers a full digital experience of the Liberation Route Europe by using available technologies and developing new projects to provide the best and most diverse experience as possible.
A responsive website in 5 languages
In June 2014, the Liberation Route Europe has launched its first website which included mostly historical content, remembrance sites and information about the Route.
In October 2016, a new website has been launched with a great effort to enhance the visitor’s experience. The database of sites and stories has been increased but most importantly a brand new ‘travel the route’ section has been developed and allowes tourists to visit more easily the route, wether they are a group, individuals or a school.
A mobile application
In June 2014, at the same time of the publication of the website, a mobile application has been launched, and give the users a chance to visit the route on their mobile. The sites are GPS located and allows visitors to know what to visit around them, read historical explanation about the sites, personal stories, watch videos, or listen to audiostories at the LRE audiospots.
09/2020 : App no longer supported or available via the Appstores
In September 2020, due to outdated libraries in the technologies used in the app and the renewal of the Liberation Route Europe’s digital environment, we decided to no longer support the Liberation Route Europe old mobile applications.
This includes those two versions of the app :
- Liberation Route Europe v2.0
- Liberation Route Europe v1.2
They are now removed from the Apple and Android stores and not available to dowload anymore.
A new Web and mobile experience to walk along history on Liberation Route Europe’s Hiking trails will be released in 2021
Virtual reality is currently one of the most game-changing technologies. The Liberation Route Europe decided to innovate and create mobile applications including this new possibilities. In July 2016, the first application for the Dutch Province of Limburg has been released, and others for the Provinces of Gelderland, Brabant and Zeeland followed.
These applications serves as teasers for visitors before an actual visit on the ground and along the audiospots network. With no doubt, virtual reality will grow more and will be a core development effort for the LRE.
