Digtal guidebook

Glimmingehus has its own unique digital guidebook. Visitors can borrow an iPad with the guidebook installed and experience the thrilling history of one of the best-preserved medieval castles in the Nordic region in a completely new way.

Through stories and dramatizations, 3D visualisations and fact boxes, you will be guided through the cellar, halls and chambers of the castle. For example, when you go down to the kitchen, you can change the display in the guidebook from the present day to how it might have looked during the Middle Ages, with a roaring fire and kitchen utensils in their allotted places. The guidebook also has audio description and sign language interpretation, with support for English, German and Danish.

A tablet with the digital guide on the screen is held up outside in front of the castle so that the screen covers the entire building except the roof.
