Historic Münchberg Way

Historisches Münchberg Historisches Münchberg

This is the English version of the German project "Historischer Münchberg Weg" (HMW) in Jefferson City's (Missouri, USA) partner city Münchberg (Bavaria, Germany).

A path through Münchberg along historic buildings and places that can be explored independently without a city guide leads you through the history of our city. You will find the routes and explanations at the beginning on an information board with designations placed along the route. On the "Historic Münchberg Way" (HMW) attention is also drawn to famous Münchberg citizens.

In addition, during the course of the path, new and historic shots of the respective stations along the way, videos and 3 D models of no longer existing structures are given in the internet. These graphics and detailed infotexts can be used through our websites and Google Earth. Those who are interested can also get additional information online and pull up the route in real time.

The HMW route and more than 40 local pop up windows with links to detailed informations about each station can be clicked in Google Earth by a KMZ file.
References to the respective stations are also available as QR codes by place. 

There are also audio data for some stations. In these audio segments stories from the past will be told.

In addition there are aerial views of the HMW stations which can be seen as single videos or in a combination as a full movie.
