Melk Abbey incorporates everything Baroque and is one of the most beautiful and finest Baroque examples in Europe. Visitors can expect fascinatingly designed museum rooms, magnificent halls such as the Marble Hall and library, an unforgettable view of the Danube valley and the high Baroque Collegiate Church. The Abbey Park invites you to relax from April to October. From the panoramic terrace of the Northern Bastion you can enjoy a far-reaching view of the park, the monastery buildings and the surrounding areas.
