Bought the little guide book at the tourist office,(€3) opposite the Hauptbahnhof and conveniently this is where one starts the tour. Its such a great idea but the line really needs to be repainted each year. there were some confusing gaps. One especially outside the Rathaus where due to repaving we lost track of it for some time and missed... More

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
