Ostfriesland Tourismus GmbH and the Provincie of Groningen were awarded for their WunderlineGO app. The innovative app was designed to raise awareness of the Wunderline, an improved train connection between the Northern Netherlands and Northern Germany.
The WunderlineGO app combines mobility, public transport and sustainability to facilitate travellers exploring and having fun throughout the Netherlands and Germany. In addition to promoting the train as a sustainable means of transport, the app highlights the stops along the route as exciting tourist destinations and invites travellers to explore the region. The jury was impressed by the app’s ability to promote a local train line while also encouraging people to explore lesser-known destinations in the region.
