When traveling, you have plenty of stuff to carry. Those hiking boots aren’t exactly a lightweight, and so often you underestimate the volume of travel reading you want to bring along. Not only backpackers know the liberating feeling of relief that comes over one after storing the luggage.

The modest weight of smartphones and tablets represent a huge advantage for the current generation of “flash packers” who have these crafty devices on every trip with them. Compared to a 1000-page tome, guides in the app format can also be updated anytime, without paper consumption (we love trees).

We have just brought some 100 tripwolf app guides up to date and filled them with the latest content, including the guides for Barcelona, Berlin, France, Amsterdam, London, and Brazil. So you already have the updated opening times of the Paris sights with you in your bag, and you also know what you can do between the matches of the World Cup.

For previously purchased guides, naturally, the guide can be updated at no additional cost.

So in your already heavy travel bag, you now have a little more space for precious memories — or a spare sweater, you never know.

Winter is coming to an end and the first specks of green are appearing in the countryside and the cities. Like every year, this also means March 17th is drawing near: St. Patrick’s Day. Around the world, the Irish and other folks celebrate this holiday honoring the day of death of the first Christian missionary in Ireland. On this day, everything is dyed green: houses, rivers, even beer, which is especially popular on this typical Irish holiday.

Since Dublin has a lot more to offer for St. Patrick’s Day than spending the day in a pub, we’d like to invite you to use this years St. Patrick’s Day to explore the Irish Capitol. If, by the end of the day, you still yearn for a cool, green Irish Beer in one of Temple Bar’s famous pubs, you will have all the more stories to tell for it.

1. The Festival Parade – A St. Patrick’s Day classic

Starting off our list with an all time classic: the St. Patrick’s Day Festival Parade! For one and a half hours hordes of flag-wavers, dancers and marching bands from multiple countries roam the streets of the Irish capital according to this year’s motto “Let’s Make History” and animate thousands of spectators to celebrate with them. If you want to join the fun, make sure you find the route of the parade between Parnell Square and St. Patrick’s Cathedral at noon.

2. Get to know the city – The St. Patrick Walking Tour

Who is this St. Patrick guy people around the world celebrate every year? If you want to find out, you should join the St. Patrick Walking Tour and follow his footsteps through the city. The tour led by professional guides takes about two hours. It also invites you to discover Dublin as well. For those who are interested, the meeting point is in front of the Discover Ireland Center at 2.20 PM.

3. Interested in art? Check out “Dublin then and now”!

When the city explodes in this much creativity, it is also time to go check out its cultural side. Go find the City Assembly House for a free exhibition of Dublin-based artists’ works of the last almost 250 years. It is organized by the Dublin Painting and Sketching Club, where the exhibited artists are or were members. The exhibition is open from 10 A.M. to 5 P.M.

4. Let the music play – Irish Music

When visiting Ireland, one should definitely check out the Irish Music scene as well. Thankfully the St. Patrick’s Day festivities include an insight to traditional Irish music: Phil Callery, Gerry Harrington and Peter Browne assemble as the „Trad Trio“ and perform traditional Irish music on fiddle and uilleann pipes with typical Irish humor. Tickets are free and can be collected at the National Concert Box Office, the show starts at 7.30 PM at the Kevin Barry Room in National Concert Hall.

5. Color splash – Greening the city

When darkness falls on March 17th, Dublin is not done with its celebrations. Now switches are flipped in front of several historic buildings throughout the city, turning on green spotlights to highlight the sights in bold green light. For years now, important institutions like Trinity College, Christ Church or St. Patrick’s Cathedral shine in green glow during the evening hours of St. Patrick’s Day, once again reminding you of the color of the day. Especially now Dublin invites you to take a stroll on its nocturnal streets to admire the beautiful colors play.

Papa’s got a brand new bag!

 

We’ve been working behind the scenes for a long time, and are excited to finally present this to our users – the new iPad app has a sleek design, fresh colors, and easy-to-understand interface.

 

What can the new iPad app do?

You can find all of the great features of the tripwolf App in the iPad version, but in a new, beautiful package.  In this new layout we’ve thought of everything: the harmonious flat design is easy on the eyes and gives you an excellent overview of all of your guides — everything’s organized in the popular card-style layout. This makes it easy to organize your vacation with simple finger swipes and to change them whenever you want. With one click get a preview of the sights, restaurants, and clubs, show the card preview or share the location with friends, or add them to your trip planner or to your favorites. Of course you can display the location whenever you want and you have all of the available travel information ready at a glance.

Enough from us – time to try it out for yourself! Through December 2, 2013, every download of the iPad app entitles you to a free guide of your choice!

We’re really excited to hear what you think about the iPad app and look forward to your e-mails and comments to this blog post.

Enjoy tripwolf for iPad, and happy travels!

Oktoberfest Survivalguide 2013

Filed under general, Germany, Munich
No Gravatar

On September 21st, the infamous Oktoberfest festivities begin in Munich – Mayor Christian Ude will give the beer tap a mighty blow at noon exactly and announce, “It is tapped!” for the 108th annual celebration.  Together with the guys behind the MyWiesn app in Munich we created the most up-to-date Oktoberfest Guide 2013 so you can enjoy your Oktoberfest adventure to the fullest.

Each year 6 million people come from all over the world and guzzle millions of pints of beer and over 500,000 roast chickens.  The “Zuagroaste” (as residents of Munich lovingly call newcomers) who stand for the first time at the gate of the Theresienwiese may ask: “How the hell do I find my way through this sea of intoxicated people, tents, beer gardens and sausage stands?”

The tripwolf Unlimited Package is proving to be even more popular than we’d imagined. We are happy that you’re taking off on so many travels, and taking us along on the journey.

We love our travel community – without the experience that you share with us and other users, our guides wouldn’t be half as informative. That’s why we would like to share with you again the tripwolf Unlimited Package: for 6 more days, you have the possibility to purchase the Unlimited Package – which includes all tripwolf guides (more than 500 destinations) – for a 15 € discount at the price of 24,99 € (instead of 39,99 €.)

The tripwolf offline maps app with more than 600 city maps

Filed under general, Mobile, Travel Tips
No Gravatar

Granted, sometimes getting lost is a good thing. It is when we’re past our plan that we sometimes find the most interesting things. And who of us does not know the phenomenon? You walk around in a foreign city with your eyes to the sky in amazement and suddenly you can’t remember which direction you came from. It’s fun for a while…until you can’t find your hotel. We don’t need to hear any more scary stories of sketchy 3 a.m. tuk tuk rides…

So we’ve created a brand new app: the tripwolf Offline City Maps app. For a flat rate of 1.79 € you get access to more than 600 city maps that can all be used offline with the most practical functions. No roaming charges, free updates and never getting lost again (unless you intend to)!

Memory space friendly: there is no limit to download, delete and re-download your maps to save storage space on your smartphone.

As always, let it all out and give us feedback right here or by email, or leave a review in the App Store.
