e. g. another Software (freeware would be nice)?

Mac or PC. It doesn't matter. I own both.

This would certainly be possible. However, I'm not aware of anything that will do the whole job out of the box.

You could certainly assemble your own from:

1. Some offline map data. I'd look at OpenStreetMaps which is certainly available for off-line use. With other solutions like Google Maps et al, there's likely to be some legal/licensing issues.

2. A map viewer, of which there are many. Take a look at:

3. Tools to extract the GPS coords from the EXIF and send them to the map viewer in the appropriate format.
