Melk Abbey, Austria
Welcome to Melk Abbey! We arrived here after our sunny afternoon cruise through the scenic Wachau Valley. Melk Abbey is one of the world’s most famous monasteries. We spent the afternoon exploring and admiring the architecture of this gorgeous building with postcard-perfect views over the Austrian town of Melk. Scroll down to see the pink infinity staircase in the abbey!! It is one of the most beautiful staircases I have ever seen.
This was one of our first views as we entered the abbey.
The abbey had panoramic views over the Austrian town of Melk.
From the balcony, you could also turn around for a closer look at the abbey’s ornate facade.
How beautiful is this marbled spiral staircase connecting the church and the library?? This was our view at the top of the staircase.
But this is the view looking back up!!
How amazing is this pink staircase?? Truly a work of art.
If you’re visiting the abbey, don’t miss the Baroque Garden Pavilion.
The inside is a little cafe where you can stop for a snack or a drink. It reminded me of an English tea room with it’s delicate pink and gold frescos.
After exploring the abbey, we walked down the hill through the town of Melk.
This was our final view of the abbey as we headed back to the boat.
Stay tuned for more! Salzburg is next. :)
