Melk, a small town of about 5,000, hugs the south side of the Danube. With a historical town center composed of 16th- and 17th-century buildings, the town is best known for a world-famous Benedictine abbey perched atop a bluff above the city. Drawn in by this holy site, visitors are charmed by the small riverside town. Take stress off the schedule by using our Austria vacation trip planner.
