Day 11 Melk, Austria

Early today we docked in Melk and hopped on the bus to tour the Abby. It is huge and has been restored so that it really shines like new, or like it looked 300 years ago. Benedictine Monks – you can google it if you really care.

The Abby Church

This painting fools people – it’s on a flat ceiling not arched.

 

Faux finished

The columns were plaster with faux finishes, not real marble. Only the door frame was made of marble.

Downtown Melk

There was a little street market going on.

So happy that the sun is shining!

Vacations are exhausting!
