Day 5 PM - Melk, Austria

After an afternoon of cruising up the beautiful Danube we arrived in the town of Melk where we had tickets for a guided tour of Stift Melk, the massive Benedictine abbey.

After the tour of the abbey we wandered into downtown Melk for a little shopping and coffee and tasty cakes.

Melk wasn't a very big town so after a quick walk through the downtown we literally walked over the river and through the woods to get back to the ship. We stayed docked in Melk until the evening before setting sail for Linz where we would dock to be bussed into Salzburg the following day.
