Transportation to the Melk Abby

by suebair8

Is there a way to get up the hill to the abby besides walking? We are arriving by river boat. We thought we could save a little money by doing the optional trip on our own.

Well - a driver from Bali is hardly going to help someone in Austria! Go away before administration sends you away.

Not sure what you mean by "the optional trip" but it's not a strenuous walk up the hill from the boat to the Abbey. No need for special transport.

so you obviously try to avoid the high costs of the tour offered by your cruisecompany ?
Then you have to walk, its maybe 20 minutes and by that time you have seen the village of Melk as well.
Entrance to the monatsery is 7,70 without guided tour + 2-3 euros for the baroque gardens that are really worth it, mainly for the great pavillon with fancy frescoes and paintings.
b.t.w. Are you sure, that your ships STAYS in Melk ???
many ships go on to Krems and take back the guests from the tour there.

Travel Tips for Melk

Musicians in Melk

by ranger49

During the heyday of Princes and Emperors many musicians were called upon to entertain the rulers of the day.
I do not know whether Anton Bruckner was ever among them but he did lodge in the town for almost a year in in the 1870s.
The plaque commerorating his stay was close to the butchers shop.

The Town Hall square (Rathausplatz)

by Fam.Rauca

The Town Hall square in Melk is the centre of this small town.
There, you find an intimate atmosphere, with old buildings, that are part of the history of Melk.
You have the possibility to go to stroll on this place, to shops, to sit into a fashionable restaurant or coffeehouse, or in summers, to drink a cold beer to a comfortable terrace.

day trip from vienna

by dvideira

Melk is located only 85 kilometers from Vienna and is easy to make a day trip to enjoy the beauty of the place.

Melk is situated on the Wachau.
The Wachau is a stretch of the Danube Valley between Melk and Krems, in Lower Austria.
It is one of the most beautiful river landscapes in the world.
It preserves in an intact and visible form many traces - in terms of architecture, (monasteries, castles, ruins), urban design, (towns and villages), and agricultural use, principally for the cultivation of vines - of its evolution since prehistoric times.

You can reach Melk by car or by train, but I believe one of the most interesting ways of doing this is taking a "wachau river cruise"

"Take the train in the morning from Westbahnhof (Vienna) to Melk,visit the Melk Abbey, then board the ship in Melk at 13:50 for the journey to Krems and return to Vienna by train, arriving at Franz-Josefs-Bahnhof."

Walking into Melk from the Train Station

by yooperprof

Melk is about 50 miles west of Vienna. Some visitors come from the capital by boat, others by coach; I arrived by train. In all, Melk Stift is said to receive half a million visitors a year! But if you are fortunate, you can still feel as if you are making a personal pilgrimage to this impressive site. I was there on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in early June, and I didn't feel at all pressed or crushed or lost in a throng. When I was there, the village center was practically deserted; I felt as if I had the place to myself. (I've been told that the July and August are the busiest months at Melk.)

Abby in Melk

by truus_s

As one travels from Salzburg to Vienna, either by car along the western motorway or by train, one should on no account miss looking out of the window to the left about an hour and a half before reaching the capital. On a precise overlookinh the green meadows beside the Danube stand an abbey and a church, crowned by towers and resplendent in golden ochre.
