I downloaded the guide in English so I could write on it as I walked the thread and took pictures. It was the perfect way to see a lot when I only had three hours.

Fantastic and relaxing way to see the center of Hannover, just follow the red line on the pavement. For about 95 % you can just follow the thread on the ground and you only have to check your little guide book when a number inside a red circle is shown on the ground. Look the number up in you booklet... More

Great way to confidently see a majority of the city solo and/or without a guide. I only had one day to see the city and it's highlights and I feel the 3€ was a great deal. Claims the 3 mi,e walk will only take 2 hours, but I think that is if you make no stops. And why wouldn't you... More

The red thread is a great way to see the sights of the city. A nice 3km walk around the city seeing various buildings, parks and attractions. Buy the book from teh tourist centre (available in various languages) as there are a few gaps in the trail (particularly in the modern shopping areas). We did the whole red thread, and... More

I thought this was a great way to see the city. I wish I had time to do the two optional sub threads (green and blue). I really felt that this gave a good variety of things to see in the city. The 3 euros for the self guided tour book is well worth it.

The red thread tour is basically a 4km red painted line that passes various landmarks through the city and each landmark (Over forty of them) is described in a guide book that can be purchased for €3 from the tourist office. By following the guide and spending time at the various attractions during the way, it is easy and inexpensive... More

The Red thread guide book is a great way to see Hannover. You start by getting the book from the Tourist Office and then follow the red line around the town to the places of interest to visit with explanations given in the book about them. If you have more time and energy you can switch to the extra tour... More
