    Abby in Melk

    by truus_s Updated Jul 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    By the abby

    Favorite thing: 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.

    MELK... STIFT

    in the church

    Favorite thing: The abbey building itself might well be mistaken for a palace.
    This is Melk Abbey, one of the most imposing architectural masterpieces north of the Alps and a focal point in the formative years of Austria's history.

    visit the Stift Melk

    by aGaby Updated Jan 18, 2003

    Favorite thing: visit this nice monastery, Stift Melk.
    The town of Melk is very small but you may see this big monastery from far away.

    Fondest memory: I once started a cruise here into the Wachau. This is something you should make, when you are in Austria !

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    there's no place like home

    Favorite thing: another house down on the riverside, this one looks as if it has been carved directly out of the stone that makes up its foundation
