Cologne Mercurius Prize


TimeRide VR

On 06 December 2019, the K├Âlner Verkehrsverein awarded TimeRide GmbH the venerable Mercurius Prize. The prize is awarded every two to three years and pays tribute to individuals and companies who significantly improve the number of tourists and the image of the city of Cologne.

The jury of the award recognizes TimeRide's concept of using Virtual Reality (VR) in combination with haptic elements to convey historical knowledge to its visitors in an emotional way. Since its opening in October 2017, TimeRide has thus managed to take more than 250,000 visitors on a journey through time to Cologne's Old Town around the turn of the century 1900.
