In 2013 we published the first app-version for Leinfelden-Echterdingen’s annual “Krautfest”. The festival is visited by more than 100’000 visitors on one weekend. The new app also contains a bus-tracking feature, which shows the location of the Krautfest-bus-shuttles live on a map – that’s a brand-new feature which isn’t even available in the official VVS app! We presented the app at the press conference last week. The app is available for iOS and Android.
