While in the tourist information asking about the best sites to see in the city and the possibility of free walking tours I was recommended to spend €3 on a small guide book. You start outside the tourist information center and then move about according to instructions in the book. When you reach a number on the footpath you look... More

The Red Thread guides you through different parts of the city and you pass the attractions worth seeing. It took us 2,5 hours - with stop a couple of places. You'll get to see beautiful buildings, water, city center, town hall etc. Really a great way to experience a city. You can follow the line yourself or buy a small... More

First time abroad solo so wanted an easy way to see the city and it's sights. Bought the book from Tourist Information for 3 euros and off I went! Easy to follow and a handy guide book, but the line does need to be re-painted as it is abit faint in places. Overall an excellent idea to see the sights... More

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
