Let’s get out to discover Toronto’s German roots with our immersive audio walk #GermanWalkTO. It's not only appreciated by many Explorers of the City, the self-guided tour app also received its very first award nomination- and we are over the moon!

We are honoured to announce that our mobile app German Walk TO has been nominated for the 2022 Public History Award. Born out of the city tours that the German Consulate Toronto organizes twice a year with local city tour guides, #GermanWalkTO is an initiative by the German Consulate General Toronto in partnership with the Toronto Metropolitan University Library, Toronto urbanist Shawn Micallef and acclaimed visual journalist Liam Maloney.

#GermanWalkTO is a virtual scavenger hunt of Toronto’s German roots, a collection of city walks, divided into three thematic walks that guide the urban explorer through different parts of the city while pointing out and explaining some of Toronto’s often hidden German treasures. The immersive audio walks lead through GPS-triggered coordinates of each German sight for a fully self-guided experience.

For the first time, we will be joining the city´s premiere heritage event in Toronto. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope our enthusiasm for the app is shared by many fellow attendees of the night.
