Visby: The Visby Witch Trials Walking Tour Game

1. Visby: The Visby Witch Trials Walking Tour Game

Travel back in time and explore the true story of the Visby witch trials. This self-guided audio walking tour takes you to locations that were at the center of the story of three women who were accused of witchcraft. The tale of Little Ingeborg, Kuske-Greta and Bohl Strijds starts in spring of 1705. Visby is in a time of change, which alarms the church and the city’s good old boys. Gotland’s inhabitants are encouraged to keep an eye out for anything that could be perceived as incompatible with a Christian way of life. A local woman steps forward and accuses healer Little Ingeborg of witchcraft, which sets a tragic series of events in motion. A short time later, three innocent women find themselves incarcerated in one of Visby’s prison towers. They are subjected to brutal interrogations and absurd accusations of a liaison with the Devil himself. Do you want to know more about what happened? Step into the story and talk a walk through Visby as it was more than 300 years ago. This interactive audio experience takes you to several historical sites in the city center. The narrator of the tour is a woman who used to live in the city and who knew Little Ingeborg, Kuske-Greta and Bohl. She needs your help to remember who she is and what her role was in all that transpired. Slowly, but surely, the story unfolds. In fact, maybe the evil forces of Visby had nothing to do with witchcraft at all? To walk this tour, you will download a separate app to your phone. An e-mail with all instructions will be sent to you after the purchase is complete. Please make sure to read through it before you go. You will be guided through the city with both visual and audio aid to ensure that you walk in the right direction. The tour will be yours to keep. You can use it at any time and as many times as you wish. Through the app, you will be able to interact with photographs, illustrations, and game elements. The app shows you what the city used to look like and what the lives of the people involved were like. The only thing you need to be able to step into the story is a smartphone with headphones. Travel back in time and experience Visby in a brand-new way!

Allows me to do it in my own time during the walk. I can pause and resume as I wished. Guides me through the walk with a map and notifies me of important locations that are in the story.

Very good interactive walk though Visby. Cool story as a lead. App with high accuracy with regards to geo location. Sophisticated design!
