The World Heritage Trail was created through the collaboration of 14 municipalities to the north and south of the Danube and thus offers a way of experiencing the whole region. Although the trail is walked by large numbers of tourists, in most places there is a lack of standardised fittings and furnishing as well as proper path maintenance.
Completion of the project should put the World Heritage Trail in a managed state and make it a leading product within the region. Staged areas should be developed that bring visitors closer to the uniqueness of the Wachau World Heritage Site. These areas will be implemented in a subsequent project.
