On top of exploring the beautiful Danube Valley, Melk Abbey's impressive library of medieval manuscripts is one of the day's hidden highlights.
It was a beautiful trip along the Danube River and the Melk Abbey.
An excellent trip. Very varied. The boat trip was impressive. Good to spend time at Melk Abbey which is magnificent. Guide very knowledgeable.
A day on the Danube River. I loved the beautiful hills around the riverbank covered with wineries. However what really impressed me was Melk Abby's elegant, pure baroque style. For more than 900 years Benedictine monks lived and worked there. The most spectacular areas, the Marble Halls and the Church we were not allowed to take pictures of. But I have to say, it competes with St Peter's Basilica in Vatican. It was beautiful beyond expression. At the same time I knew that they have some of the best wine in Austria. We checked this and it is true!
andefo recommendother good trip, beautiful trip on river boat with drinks and lunch available,
It was a cold rainy day in September,2016 when we went on this trip. But the views along the Danube were stunning and the guided tour of the Abbey was very absorbing and interesting. The guide also gave us sufficient time to have a nice meal at the restaurant in the Abbey and we got an opportunity to try the specialities of the area. He also enriched us with information about Austrian culture, the history and about day to day life in that region. Please note that there was hotel pickup but the drop off is at the Opera house in Vienna which wasn't a problem for us as we explored the area around St.Peter's cathedral in the evening.
We had an excellent day. The Melk Abbey is one of the most beautiful abbeys I have ever seen. wonderful place. The boat trip was also very good with an excellent weather.
went on a rainy day so outside activities was limited, but the experience was still beyond expectations. would highly recommend
a really excellent tour, with a great guide and fantastic scenery. do not miss the castle where Richard the Lionheart was held prisoner until his mother paid the ransom.
