About Melk Abbey, Melk

A grand Benedictine abbey which was founded about a millennium ago the Melk Abbey is a gem on the banks of the Danube river. Much of the abbey was added later between 1702 and 1736 by architect Jakob Prandtauer. Throughout the ages the Melk has suffered damages but is now fully restored to its glory. It is also a monastery co-ed school with about 900 students. The exquisite carvings in the marble hall, the library with over 80,000 volumes, the Emperor’s gallery and the frescoes by Johann Michael in the church all are worth watching to know their glory. There’s even a restaurant located near the entrance which serves hot meals and wine.

  • You can take a Day Tour trip from Vienna to this opulent Architectural Masterpiece, which played so important place in History of Austria. It is of Religious and cultural importance of the country. Interiors only accessible if you join the tour , which is so informative. A must visit place if you are touring Austria.

  • We visited it as a day trip from Vienna. The Abbey was clean and impressive. We felt though that the vineyards ahead of Abbey are much more interesting and worth a visit. We had taken the river cruise but left it in between to cycle downtown from Abbey.

  • We visited the Abbey as part of our Danube River Cruise. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide. The tour took us through the museum then to the library and the church. If you have an opportunity to hear the organ, take it. It's an incredible sound. The tour guide mentioned that early winter and spring are the best times to visit due to low crowds.

  • Beautiful historical Abbey at the Melk village of Austria country. It is a well maintained one, with beautiful architecture and it is a popular tourist attraction (many groups are visiting the Abbey) at the area. The view of the Danube river from this spot is amazing.

  • Awesome experience to visit this working Abbey and secondary school. Beautiful! Saw many fascinating historical artifacts and a relic of Saint John the Baptist.
