We love reading, nature and culture. We are fascinated by the different worlds within us and around us. Books, forests, mountains and museums have shaped our lives. LARIXPRESS came into being thanks to this enthusiasm. The name larix (Latin for larch tree) stands for our native landscape, the word press is an acknowledgement of the cultural tradition of the printed book and the artisanship that characterises our digital creations. With our e-media for children, we wish to raise awareness about nature and life, encourage reading and multilingualism and mediate culture in a new way with the options that the digital world puts at our disposal.
Are you looking for new ways to further your cultural institution? We offer museums, publishing houses, associations, tourist boards and others involved in the cultural sector tailor-made solutions in order to stage existing content on mobile devices. This breathes new life into cultural options and increases their appeal for new target groups. Over the past few years, we have created a number of very different apps in the culture sector for smartphones and tablets, even with a smaller budget.
A presence on the internet is important. But this alone will not attract new customers and ensure brand loyalty in the long term. Nowadays, the demand is for stories that do not contain aggressive advertising messages but rather entertain target groups and fit into the sphere of experience of the company. We are happy to develop a personal interactive story app for you that suits your company!
Everything from a single source
Our apps are developed by a well-coordinated team of authors, illustrators, animators, sound designers and programmers.
We use all our technical potential to produce interactive and multimedia applications for smartphones and tablets.

Develop the book further and get young people interested in nature and culture with our magical moments of reading.
Stimulate children’s imaginations and arouse their curiosity in a fun manner.
Help children to learn other languages and encourage multilingualism in an ever-merging world.
Turn reading into a shared experience.
Our stories take the whole family off into a world of fantasy and knowledge where adventure and entertainment are guaranteed – and learning too.
These days, children grow up with computers, the internet and mobile phones: they are effectively digital natives. In an increasingly technological world where everything changes at such a fast pace, it’s hard to keep up. We are parents ourselves, and we know how difficult it is to identify valid ideas that will help our children develop and learn from among the wide variety of products on the market.
We wish to make a contribution to this process and offer high-quality apps to promote reading and early language learning in children of between 3 and 10 years old.
Step into the adventure of digital reading and share some wonderful reading moments.
We wish you all happy reading and lots of fun!

In addition, we offer cultural apps that are specially developed for children and young people. Our range runs from animated books to educational games such as treasure hunts, simulated auctions or general knowledge quizzes. Our children’s apps are developed to entertain, arouse curiosity and mediate cultural content in a fun manner.
Welcome to the area dedicated to cultural institutions and cultural mediators, such as publishers, foundations, associations and museums. We are here to support and advise you on the concept from the very start to help create your app. We focus and optimise your ideas to help them meet their target group and achieve attractive end results even on a small budget. We accompany you through all stages of the project – from the initial idea and through the programming stage right up to marketing and sales in the various appstores.

You can find the apps that we have already created for a variety of cultural institutions here.
Often, museums do not have the necessary hardware at their disposal and have difficulty selecting and funding suitable equipment. We will be happy to help you in this matter and support you in every aspect of your plans so that we can develop individual solutions together. We can then offer you the business model that best suits you.
Financing via admission charges
If you select this model, then a previously-agreed percentage will be calculated for you for every visitor. This solution is ideal if the audioguide is included in the museum price. The museum then has added value in terms of media that pays for itself.
Rental and leasing
With this model, we do not just take care of the app programming, but also supply the technical devices of your choice: smartphones or tablets, charging stations and headphones.
Here, you can have a comprehensive package at a fixed price: all the services concerning the app project and procurement of the necessary devices and whatever else you might need. We advise you on all points and offer, as with all of our business models, our all-round service for both the app and the devices.
