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.
