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.
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 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 !
The beautiful Arcades, is an architectural peculiarity of the Abbey of Melk.
On the way to the museum, one can admire this handsome piece of jewellery.
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

Fondest memory: TEAHOUSE BY THE ABBY,There is a great garden by the the teahouse where you can make a walk..And thrinking a tea!!
