What we show

Uncomplicated DayTrips

Our Web App only shows results that make sense from your starting point. That means that we only give you trip recommendations whithout lots of transfers or a long last mile to walk.

How

Schedule Data + content

We connect two different worlds: leisure activities, events, hiking tours or bike rentals is transmitted via the touristic association. The schedule data is being provided via the regional traffic association.

Everybody asks

Isn't that basically google maps?

Nope. Google, TripAdvisor, Yelp & others display all points of interests (POI), no matter how complicated or impossible it is for you to get there by public transport. We only display POI that are actually within good reachability. Depending on weekday and starting point these are always different POI.

Now it is easy as cake to plan daytrips without a car.

Set your current location or another where you want to start your daytrip from.

In the list view I only scroll through DayTrips, that are actually easy to do: No big transfers and fast.

Also nice entry points for hiking tours, where a bus or train is going right now. 

To which round hiking tours am I getting to easy and fast? Bus stops which work directly as entry points for hiking tours.

Filter hiking tours according to their difficulty, length and how easy and fast you can reach their entry points with public transport

I can get inspired in the List View or in the Map View.

Every region has their own categories.

In the Detail View I have access to all info I need at one place: photos, opening hours, places to eat, etc.

Also Ticket tips, the next connection and how much CO2 I actually safe in comparison to a car…

… and finally, the Route and more connections I could use to do this dayTrip.

Benefits for

Traffic Associations

Friendly Image

Public transport is often seen as sth pragmatic and kind of grey. Our Web App helps to associate it with the fun sides of life!

Balance Capacities

Usually, busses and trains are crowded during rush hours and can be kind of empty in between those rushes. We motivate tourists to use public transport. They often use secondary lines and fill the gaps between rush hours.

New Customers

The only reason why many city dwellers still have a car is because they want to do a daytrip every once in a while to get out of the city. Soon they will hop on into your train or bus.

I would have never thought that I can reach that many and super nice destinations with public transport. I will have to think hard if I actually still need my car...
