Soundtrackcity invites you to rediscover the city on foot while listening to soundtracks created by artists specifically for the route. No audiotours but soundwalks. The walks follow routes through different parts of the city and each tell a different story about the past, present and future of the area, based on the stories and experiences of residents. Walk with us and immerse yourself in a unique audio mix of voices, sounds and music.

What is new?
Soundtrackcity currently offers 23 soundwalks in and around Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Istanbul. Subscribe to the newsletter (click the blue button) and we’ll send you an update when new walks go public.

How does it work?
With an mp3 player and headphones you make a trip of about 60 minutes. Along the way you listen to a mix of urban stories, ambient sound, music, the voice of a guide, archive footage and a specially composed soundscape.

You can walk whenever you want. Along the way you decide when to pause or resume your walk.

How do I get it?
You have several options:
1. Walk with the Soundtrackcity app iPhone or Android. The app is free and we offer off-line walks, so no extra or hidden costs.
2. Walk with us. Book one of our group walks on the agenda. Fully catered, including iPod and headphones. Accompanied by a Soundtrackcity guide. In the calendar, you can find an overview of the group walks scheduled.
3. Buy the book Soundtrackcity. For € 17.50 you have a DVD with the soundtracks of eight walks (approimately 8 hours sound), and a full-color edition with extensive background information. A bargain.
