"Daytrip to Melk" excursions from Vienna Tip by caffelatte

excursions from Vienna, Vienna: 58 reviews and 104 photos

I visited in winter, so boat tour to Melk was out of question. I was advised by the receptionist to simply take the train to melk instead of tourbus, and he was so correct. There are frequent trains to melk (15euro oneway) from Vienna. The abbey is a 10 minute walk from the train station.
In winter you can only enter the abbey with a guided tour only that is offered twice a day. So better watch out for the timing. Guided tour costs only 1 euro more, and I highly recommend that. Our guide was very good (Yes, i have seen not so good guides too).
