Many - and all that we saw.: Blessedly Untouristy
We enjoyed our walk about the little town of Melk because it seemed to be SO untouristy. Few, if any specialist "souvenir shops", just bakers, butchers and bakers, flower shops, banks a post office and business offices.
A few clothes shops - some displaying items a tourist might need like a warm or rain proof jacket.
If you wanted to buy a small gift here to take home I an sure you would have found one.
But there was no sign of in your face. tawdry, tourist specific shops.
Stift Melk Souvenirs: Books, brochures, souvenirs...
This shop offers a plentiful selection at books about Melk Abbey, view cards as well as a multiplicity from traditional souvenirs.
Impressively is the big wood clock, approximately 2 meters high that decorated the store room.
Especially remarkable, is the wood embroidery, and the hand-made wood mechanism of the clock.
What to buy: Books, art, local craft, gifts, view cards, souvenirs, and many others.
