Where to stay

The small town of Melk has a smattering of hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts in the compact center and surrounding areas. For best accessibility to the town’s main tourist attraction, Melk Benedictine Abbey, look for lodging in the center. The Abbey overlooks the Danube River, so you can also consider staying along the river for views of the monastic building from your own room.
