The one and a half kilometer long circular trail "The Red Thread" lets you experience the history of the town of Melk - with its historical sights from the remains of the medieval town wall to the "most beautiful post house in Austria" and the famous "Kachelvilla".

At the Wachau Info Center there is an audio guide for the circular route. Augus Prinzl - a Melk original of days gone by - tells stories about the individual sights. The audio tracks can also be accessed via smartphones using the QR codes on the stelae and information boards along the trail.
