R-City Guide

The Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches launches “R-City Guide,” a free app featuring interactive tours in ten key locations of the Swiss Reformation. The app is now available for free at the App Store and Google Play.

GPS-guided tours show your own location and guide you along key points of interest that are explained with texts, images and audio. Users can discover Zwingli’s birthplace in Wildhaus in the district of Obertoggenburg, explore the backgrounds of the “disputation window” inside Lausanne Cathedral, visit the “Churer Hasenstube” in the St. Martin parsonage and view Europe’s largest church clock in Zurich.

A national calendar of events complements the R-City Guide; in addition, links to the participating Reformed Cantonal churches and the Cantonal tourism websites are provided. The first version, published today, includes Basel, Bern, Chur, Geneva, Ilanz, Lausanne, Neuenburg, St.Gallen, Wildhaus and Zurich. Schaffhausen will be added in the coming year.
