Exhibition: The Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in the Osnabrück Land region

In cooperation with the Kalkriese Museum in the Osnabrück Land region, the GUIDING GROUP created six audio guides for adults and children as part of a redesigned exhibition on the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest between Romans soldiers and Germanic warriors.

The museum offers a vivid insight into the different worlds of Roman legionaries and Germanic tribes, as well as the course of Roman power politics in the Germanic areas. How did the Romans and Germanic peoples live at the dawn of the first millennium? Who were the main figures in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest? And how did the battle unfold on the slopes of the Kalkreis Hill?

The audio guide takes visitors on an exciting journey back in time to the year A.D. 9. A special children’s audio guide was also developed, with younger visitors accompanied on their journey of discovery by 12-year-old Victoria and Professor Kalkriesel. The Kalkriese Museum’s archaeological park shows finds from the renowned Battle of the Teutoburg Forest at the location on Kalkriese Hill where Germanic warriors drew the Roman legionaries into a deadly trap. To bring the events on the historical battlefield to life, we designed a special kind of audio guide. Visitors eavesdrop on the main protagonists of the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest – Varus, the Roman commander, and Arminius, leader of the Germanic tribes. Thanks to modern technologies, these once bitter enemies could take the chance to talk openly – and wouldn’t you like to know what they have to say!

In addition, we also developed an audio guide for the large scale Colossal art exhibition showing works by twenty artists from thirteen countries. In their works, these artists, primarily from the new generation, engaged with and reflected on the theme of the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest and the historical location of Kalkriese.

The GUIDING GROUP provided the following services:
• Research and script production for the different audio guide tours inside and outside the museum
• Translations into English
• Two tours for children in German
• Recording, editing, mixing and producing the audio commentaries
• Provision of guide devices (iPods)
