Stift Melk

After taking a breather on Monday - we only walked to Schleierfalls outside of Gaming - we hit the road again on Tuesday for a visit to Melk Abbey, an impressive baroque Benedictine monastery dating to 1089 when Leopold II, Margrave of Austria, gave one of his castles to the monks.

The Abbey is superbly located on the Danube River.

And features a magnificent library.
