Hannover Hbf transfer platforms

I will be taking a group from Berlin tobAmsterdam via Hannover. The DB website says our platform is #12. It would seem that the configuration of the station has 2 sets of platforms, I imagin indicating the direction a train is going. My question, is 12 minutes enough time to make connection from one side of station to other, if that is the case? I’ve done group travel on trains but haven’t been to this station. Thanks

You only mentioned one platform, what about the other?

And what do you mean by two sets of platforms? Indicating the direction of travel? I really don‘t understand what you mean by that?

If you mean that there are two sets of stairs going up in opposite directions from the main corridor: yes that is true but both will get you to the same platform only on different sides. It doesn‘t matter which side you choose.

There are platforms 1-14 (5-6 is missing). Each platform has two tracks on either side of the platform: 1 and 2, 3 and 4, etc.

Walking from platform 14 to 1 would take about 5 minutes so you can easily do a transfer in 12 minutes, that‘s no problem at all
