Take a journey of discovery with the Goethe-Institut’s “Deutsche Spuren” (i.e. German traces) app and follow German footsteps all over the World.

The „Deutsche Spuren“ app is an interactive tour guide for the Federal Republic of Germany’s globally active cultural institute. Read and listen to descriptions of places with a connection to Germany – put together by local Goethe-Instituts. Learn more about architecture, history or people and look at pictures and videos.

The Goethe-Institut has been and is internationally active for over sixty years and in over 90 countries around the world: it promotes knowledge of the German language abroad, conveys a comprehensive picture of Germany and cultivates international cultural cooperation. With the aid of local expertise, the Goethe-Institut is able to include both well-known as well as not-so-well-known traces in the app.

“Deutsche Spuren” is an information product of the Goethe-Institut for at home and on the road. With the map view, you can browse among trails and traces at home, as well. On location, the app enables a search for traces in your vicinity and provides an augmented reality view. The app also functions offline after downloading the data of one of the available countries or places. The product is continually updated and will soon be available for additional locations.
