The early days of Hamburg are hidden beneath the streets, houses and squares of the city: the Domplatz (“cathedral square”) in the heart of Hamburg is a place with a very special history. Here lay the Hammaburg, nucleus and namesake of the city of Hamburg. This place can now be explored through a variety of digital offers with one’s own smartphone.


The tour starts at one of Hamburg’s most important monuments, the Bischofsturm (“bishop’s tower”). The ring-shaped tower foundation from the 12th century is the oldest surviving stone building in Hamburg’s old town. Over the last two years, the SmartSquare project has created cultural multimedia mediation services here and on the Domplatz.


The participants are cordially invited to experience and test apps, chats, audio contributions and animations live on the approximately 90-minute guided tour. Do not forget your smartphone or tablet!
