“Exploring the city by the red thread”
Review of The Red Thread

The Red Thread
Ranked #1 of 17 Tours in Hannover
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 April 2017 via mobile

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. The kids (aged 6 and 9) loved looking for the numbers on the trail and the points of interest.

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 the sidewalks could be repainted. While it wasn't mentioned in the app but maybe it should be, folks who are interested will find several Stolpersteine as you enter the Old Town section of the tour.

We really enjoyed following the read thread all over Hannover. We picked upa guide book at the tourist info centre near the train station, which was very helpful.

If it is you first time in the city than I would suggest to follow the path. With the brochure that you can buy at the tourist information, you learn a lot about the city. We did few hours to walk the entire path because we took our time to see the monuments and few stops in the local bars and restaurant. My suggestion is going and explore the different places around the path.

We bought the book for 3EUR from tourist information and really enjoyed walking around the city. We actually got lost between points 1 and 2 and some of the lines have faded in some parts but that adds to the fun! We ran into another couple who had also managed to get turned around in the old town but for 3EUR it is great value and gives you lots of useful information. Apparently there is another book if you want to leave the main red line and take a blue tour but as everywhere is closed on a Sunday we didn't have chance to look at this. It takes you around the main sites and you can't really get lost in the city as you can follow the line back to the centre!
