Abbey of Melk

The Abbey of Melk is one of the most impressive examples of the Baroque in Austria. Among the many interesting things to see, it is certainly the magnificent library with its stunning frescos by the local painter Paul Troger that attracts most visitors. Other ‚must-sees’ include the Emperor’s staircase, the new Abbey Museum in the former Emperor’s apartments and the Marble Hall. For those who have a little more time to spend, it is certainly worthwhile enjoying the lush Abbey Park with the Baroque garden pavilion, the breath-taking view of the Danube from the gallery and the beauty of the renowned church of the monastery.
