Melk Abbey - Review

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.

  • The Abbey is quite expansive but only a small part of it is open to the public. Also, no photos are permitted inside the Abbey or church. However, the areas that can be visited give the visitor a good appreciation of Abbey history. The church is a stunning example of the high baroque period. The gardens are beautifully maintained and there are many benches placed throughout to sit and enjoy the surroundings. Highly recommend a visit to the Abbey.

  • A delightful day trip from Vienna- 50 minutes by train. Picturesque town,with the Abbey dominating the sky line. Spend some quiet time in the beautiful gardens. Well worth the visit

  • Big, interesting abbey with tons of history. You really should buy the booklet in the abbey shop, they have it in your language too. The small town below is worth a trip, nice restaurants. There is a direct train from Vienna, see Google Maps.

  • Majestic place. Beautiful gardens. Allow enough time for visit

  • Not bad. Just a historical place. The small town nearby is also sleepy town. With only 20 shops. Park nearby is nature. Overall good but for short tour only.
