Cisterscapes 3D landscape model

Short facts

  • Odenthal
The 3D landscape model exemplifies the landscapes cultivated by the monasteries over the centuries and the shared cultural heritage of the Cistercians in Altenberg.
The map, which is over 2 metres in size, uses markers from the areas of agriculture, settlement, religion and crafts to show the local traces of the Altenberg Cistercian monks in Odenthal and their sphere of influence in the greater Cologne area.

With the Cisterscapes app, you can experience the model interactively 
and in three dimensions. Augmented reality brings the 
most important Cistercian buildings on site to life, above all 
the Altenberg Cathedral! Virtual info points provide 
interesting information about the 35 markers distributed across the map.

In the app, you can also learn more about the European 
heritage of the 16 other Cistercian monastery landscapes in 
a total of five European countries.
