Make sure you have the guide book in case you get lost as the line is missing in a couple of places. However in getting lost you also find other interesting things. I did this twice, once on my own at a slow pace and...More

Had great fun completing the red thread trail. It's a great way to see the city. The red line is missing in places but we didn't get lost as we purchased the guide book. We did have to make a detour due to building work....More

I bought the app and followed the self-guided walking tour. I thought the landmarks were interesting and pretty easy to find most of the time. It would be helpful if the several sections where the paint has worn away or disappeared due to construction on...More

We followed "The Red Thread"with a booklet that we bought in the tourist information center. It was very useful and it was an excellent way to quickly see the main landmarks of the city. Around 1.5 - 2.0 walking tour.

It's an alternative for the guided walking tours in the city. The booklet explains things about the city like a guide. Just keep an eye on the book for the pictures of the places you are looking out for. Otherwise, you may miss something.
