Bergeijk is a scenic area right next to the Dutch-Belgian border. Those borders used to be quite special in the old days, but nowadays people cross those borders absent-minded. Until they reach the so-called ‘Grenspalen’. Those Grenspalen often have interesting stories and that’s why Dutch Rose Media developed the Wandel in Bergeijk app. This is an app that features walking routes alongside those Grenspalen and will tell users about the history of those exact locations. The routes vary from 5 to 30 km and each have a theme, for example a route about smuggling. Audio fragments (recorded by actual smugglers) will tell users more about the history.
In April 2017 a new route was added to the Wandel in Bergeijk app: the Rietveld route. Bergeijk harbours a rich history about designer Rietveld. In this new and fun route everyone can discover the way in which Rietveld formed Bergeijk into the town it is today.
