Famous Baroque monastery overlooks Danube (founded in 18th century; ornate abbey church, library) in the town of Melk.

Looks new? We saw it after it was redone. This is one place you cannot miss!

We saw lots of tourists but no monks. Maybe the ticket taker was a monk?

Me and Mrs Bottig. The village of Melk to the left, part of the Danube to the right

The courtyard.

The library. 16,000 volumes, most handwritten. Guess it was hard to publish enough to get a best seller.
