When you see the beautiful monastery Stift Melk on the southern shore of the danube – then you are in the Wachau. The Wachau is a region beside the Danube which is well known for wine and apricots. It reaches 40 km from the city Melk to the city Krems and is cultural heritage, awarded by the UNESCO.
The Wachau became a heritage site because it’s an international renowned winegrowing region and one of the most beautiful river valleys in the world. It takes you 40 minutes by car and is an all time favourite of our guests, naturally.
Monastery Stift Melk
Melk has been a spiritual and cultural center of the country for more than 1000 years, first as a castle for the Babenbergs, then as a Benedictine monastery, founded by Margrave Leopold II.
Since the 12th century a school has been connected with the monastery, and valuable manuscripts have been collected and created in the library. In the course of the monastery’s history, members of the Melk monastic community have achieved significant success in the fields of natural science and the arts.
