Afternoon in Melk
I recently came back from a lovely trip in Austria & Hungary (mainly Vienna & Budapest) & one of the highlights was the visit to Melk. I must admit I didn’t do any research regarding what I could see outside of Vienna prior to this. My bf wanted to go to the Mauthausen Memorial and on our way there by car, while admiring the landscapes, I noticed an amazing palace-looking building shining in the sun above a quaint-looking town. I looked it up and immediately decided that I want to take a closer look, so when we returned from the Memorial we stopped in this adorable town called Melk, well-known for its 18th century baroque abbey.
Unfortunately, when we arrived there it was already pretty late and we also stopped for a bite, so when we went up to the Abbey it was already closed. However, we did manage to take a few quick photos. I was super disappointed that I did not get to see the interior and the gardens, but I definitely need/want to go there again. Well, at least we managed to walk around a bit & enjoy the town ^_^ . So If you’re planning a trip to Austria, definitely add Melk to your list, it’s about 80 km from Vienna.
