Melk, a quiet city, is located on the Danube River, just off the scenic Wachau Valley in Austria. Like many of the ports in this region, Melk's history as a city harkens back centuries, and this is apparent in the town's architecture.

More about Melk

Why go to Melk?

Pros:

Visit stunning Melk Abbey, which was the inspiration for a famous novel

Cons:

This small port has uneven cobblestone streets that can make walking a challenge

Bottom Line:

Melk is a quiet, peaceful place full of history

Good to Know?

Be aware: Due to age, flooding and construction, Melk's cobblestone streets have taken a beating and may be dangerously uneven in patches.

Getting Around?

Don't be afraid to wander around on your own in Melk; it's a relatively small port, so it's difficult to get lost. One main path leads you into town from your ship, and a small town center with shops and a few eateries serves as the backdrop for your stroll.
