New “City & Regio Guide”
City – Country – Rhine
One magazine, one region and 240 pages of inspiration – in the new “City & Regio Guide” visitors and inhabitants find everything they need to know about sights, destinations and leisure activities around the metropolitan area of Karlsruhe. In cooperation with “Karlsruhe Tourismus”, “map.solutions” published a new concept for the city and all its touristic partners within an area of 100 kilometers around Karlsruhe.
“So far, this is unique and opens up a whole new perspective on this region”, says Marc Schichor, initiator, publisher and editor of the “City & Regio Guide”. With a colorful mixture of information, facts and insider knowledge about the districts and its sights, guests explore Karlsruhe in many different – and partly unknown – facets. At the same time, the travel and leisure guide goes beyond the city area and even leads over state and country borders and arouses curiosity for destinations around Karlsruhe.
Clearly structured, different categories, matching icons and various tour guides as well as an enclosed fold-out map with city maps and a general outline give a quick overview at the spot or for preparations at home. Individual topics, like cycling, hiking or enjoying, show, where to find the matching and best hot spots for the planned activities. Furthermore, the different places and its activities are presented on separate pages. ”It represents a unique unification of Karlsruhe, the Black Forest, the Alsace and the Palatinate and should inspire visitors as well as inhabitants to discover the region”, explains Klaus Hoffmann, managing director of “KTG Karlsruhe Tourismus”.
