Eating and exploring our way through the world

The Town of Melk

Posted by Amanda @ The Hungry Wanderers on August 26, 2009

After touring the Abbey in Melk, Austria, we headed into the town to take a look around.  Melk was the only port on the river cruise that didn’t have that day’s English language newspapers so that gave us a certain idea of what it would be like when we walked around.

It was too cute!  It was a very small town and still quite early in the morning so nearly nothing was open.  The Husband and I stopped to look at real estate listings in one window and could envision living here! If only we had a reason to live in a quaint little town in Austria 🙂




As you can see, the Abbey is a huge part of the town that you can see from many different areas.


After an hour or so, we headed back to the bus in order to head back to the boat.


We continued down the Danube toward our final destination on the cruise: Vienna! We enjoyed beautiful views of the Wachau Valley and the numerous locks along the way…
