“Pictures say more than a thousand words!” – Bamberg District Administrator Johann Kalb is enthusiastic about the new 3D landscape model of the Ebrach monastic landscape, a newly developed app and the landscape film “Cistercian landscapes – traces in Europe”. The new media for the transnational project “Cisterscapes – Cistercian landscapes connecting Europe” were presented to a broad public on 18 April.

“Europe’s cohesion is shown in our project,” the Bamberg District Administrator is convinced. “The Cistercians have enriched us. Now we are giving the Cistercians back the status they deserve,” Johann Kalb is very confident that the application for the European Heritage Label will be successful. This has been before the European Commission in Brussels since February, the last major milestone on the way to the hoped-for awarding of the seal in 2024. “In the meantime, we have already moved a lot, since 2019 we have been carrying the European idea further and making the European Heritage Label a tangible experience through the “Cistercian Way” and the actions of all partners with the most modern media,” emphasised District Administrator Johann Kalb at the inauguration of the model and the premiere of the landscape film.

The interactive model of the Ebrach monastic landscape has found its permanent home in the foyer of the meeting wing in the Bamberg District Office. Interested people give a short notice at the main entrance of the district office if they want to explore the model. The CISTERSCAPES app can be used via the two tablets connected to the model, or you can download the free app yourself from the Android or iOS store to have it with you on the go. The app allows users to take a virtual journey through all 17 Cisterscapes landscapes. It offers information on almost 600 elements of the sites in at least two languages (ger/en). Augmented reality brings striking buildings to life in 3D. The monastery landscape system, which became effective far beyond the central monastery sites, thus becomes vivid. The landscape model and app were developed by the Althentann-based company ArcTron.
