muenchen.de and einfach-muenchen.de expand their webcam services with new live images from Marienplatz.
The state capital of Munich and the official city portal of muenchen.de have expanded their webcam service offerings. In addition to Olympiapark, the city center and Isar, the webcams now also show Marienplatz, which was recently equipped with a new camera with a view of the Rathaus city hall and the Frauenkirche church. Since the new camera went online just a few weeks ago, the live images from Marienplatz have been viewed over 2.4 million times.
The live streams of Marienplatz, including a 360-degree player and time lapse, can not only be seen on muenchen.de and einfach-muenchen.de but also on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV (feratel webcams app) and around the clock on more than 60 online portals worldwide. In addition, the panorama images are presented to an audience of millions on television every day: among others, on BR, on ARD alpha and münchenTV as well as on Belgium’s public TV broadcasters – Canvas and één.
“With the worldwide distribution of our live images, we evoke the emotion and desire to visit Munich as soon as possible, regardless of whether it is a matter of day tourists, city travelers or vacation guests”, remarks Dr. Lajos Csery, Managing Director of muenchen.de.
With technology supplier feratel at its side, the state capital of Munich and muenchen.de have extensive technical expertise and a distribution network that extends across all digital channels. “The webcams operated on the feratel network generated “3.3 billion visual contacts in 2020. Our own portal ‘feratel.com’ has up to 114,000 visitors on peak days”, explains Rainer Egen, Managing Director of feratel Germany.
Munich is the focal point in southern Germany for business, culture, gastronomy, nightlife, sports, shopping and much more. Day visitors and vacation guests value the Bavarian capital for its broad range of offerings and its unmistakable charm. Nearly 9 million arrivals and over 18 million overnight stays in 2019 highlight the great attractiveness of the megapolis for tourists from all over the world. Clemens Baumgärtner, the tourism expert responsible for work and business states: “We want to and will quickly follow up on this with the restart in 2021/22. The images from the webcams not only provide beautiful views of our city, but they also invite you to take a trip to Munich.
