  Haus am Stein and Stift Melk
by socrates_07

After the walk though the Old Town and the Linzerstrasse (with the Post house) I arrived the main street along the Danube River. I turned back and ... again Melk Abbey. But in the foreground you can see the House on the Rock.

The "Haus am Stein" was built in 1550. It is the watch tower of Melk's fortifcation and called "Lug ins Land".
