Don't Miss in Melk
The indisputable main attraction is Melk Abbey, a breathtaking monastery perched above the city on a hilltop. Your cruise line should offer an excursion there that includes a sweeping tour of the building and its grounds and a spectacular view of the city. Inspiration for Umberto Eco's well-known mystery novel, "The Name of the Rose," was taken from the abbey and its unforgettable library.
