This walker’s commemorative pin is a visible symbol of all the effort as well as a reminder for every hiker of the many impressions and experiences gained along the way. The Neckarsteig office has now taken up this concept as well.
Hard-working hikers on the varied trail in the Neckar Valley have been able to ‘earn’ this classic pin since September 2014. The 12 municipalities on the trail not only offer culinary and cultural delights, but also the Neckarsteig hiking pass with the appropriate stamp.
This is how it works: the free hiking pass is available at all tourist information offices, the local municipalities and at the official stamp points along the path. With this pass in your backpack, you can hike along the Neckarsteig and get stamps from the 60 partners listed on the back of the pass. Anyone who has collected at least 10 of the 12 stamps will receive the commemorative pin and a certificate.
As early as December 2013, several attractions along the Neckarsteig were equipped with so-called QR codes, similar to barcodes on packaging. Walkers scanned the code via mobile phone camera and received detailed information about the object directly on their mobile phones.
A new addition is that the scan is stored in the system in a digital hiking pass. The pass requires only location sharing on the smartphone. To use the digital hiking pass, hikers must first register at www.neckarsteig.world-qr.com with their e-mail address and password.
If at least 18 of the 27 possible points have been collected, the Neckarsteig Office will present the commemorative pin with a certificate to mark the achievement.
