19 Aug - Wachau Valley & Melk, Austria

September 20, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

19 Aug – On this Friday we were treated to scenic sailing. On the upper deck, were enjoyed spectacular views and commentary by Program Director Elana as we sailed through the Wachau Valley. Castles were aplenty and there even was the Wachauer Nase which resides by the Danube at the ferry stop in Sankt Lorenz opposite Weißenkirchen / Wachau. It looks as if a giant was buried underground with only his nose poking out. The nostrils are big enough for people to enter. It boastfully is the most beautiful nose in the whole of Wachau, and all winegrowers wish it was theirs. In the afternoon we were treated to a shore excursion to Melk, Austria and the Melk Abby. This was the highlight of our Danube Valley visit. This has been described by some as the most famous abbey in Austria. The views from the abbey are sensational. Built between 1702 and 1736, the abbey was originally a royal palace with ceremonial courts, guest apartments, grand halls and a library. The library, itself, was very impressive; It comprises a main hall that boasts 16,000 volumes, plus 12 more rooms that are not open to the public but contain an additional 100,000 volumes. No photos were permitted inside the abbey :-[
