Hannover Travel Tip:
The Red Thread

The Red Thread
The Red Thread leads you to 36 attractions in Hannover

The Red Thread is a floorline visitors’ guide of a different kind. The Red Thread is painted on the pavement, is 4200 metres long, and weaves its way through the inner city joining up 36 prime attractions. All you have to do is follow the Red Thread.

This do-it-yourself city tour is accompanied by an informative brochure which describes all of the interesting buildings and monuments you meet along the way, and is also full of interesting historical background. Furthermore the brochure describes a new "ExtraTour" which is a 45 minutes refreshing detour to the banks of Lake Maschsee.

The brochure costs 2.50 € and is available from the Tourist Information opposite the central railway station, and the Infocounter in the New Town Hall, Trammplatz 2.
