Experience

The purpose of the on-site experiences

On-site experiences organized by the partner cities aim to let citizens rediscover the cultural heritage and the shared common history of the Euregio Meuse-Rhine.

Citizens and tourists are in this way incited to visit the cities of the Euregio with

a renewed interest and to experience the stories of this territory thanks to the newest technologies in 3D-scanning, and in Augmented and Virtual Reality.

The cities mentioned below will implement specific on-site experiences over the course of the Terra Mosana-project.

Discover the Euregio

If you travel through the Euregio, don’t hesitate in stopping by those wonderful cities and discover our history thanks to innovative on site experiences. 

Please note that these activities are in development and will be open to the public in 2021.

Films, exhibitions, and historical narratives around the city of Charlemagne and the Euregio will be devised. They will be also the basis for other didadict programs.
Liège

Liège

Two experiences have to be discovered in Liège. The city of Liege and the University of Liège will propose a 3D-digitalisation of the Saint-Lambert cathedral and the old town of Liège. A reproduction in stone will be installed and can be explored thanks to AR-technology. Beside, Virtual Reality allows visitors to explore the Place Saint-Lambert through the ages.
