The Austrian city of Melk and the nearby Wachau Valley are undoubtedly highlights of most Danube River cruises. The main attraction is the impressive Benedictine Melk Abbey. This 11th-century monastery towers over the town and features a baroque marble hall, library and church. Travelers have the option to hike in the surrounding verdant hills and breathe in the crisp fresh air of the Wachau Valley or enjoy a more relaxing walking tour of Durnstein, where Richard the Lionheart was held prisoner. Make sure to sample some of the locally vinted wines during your stay. Vienna, Budapest, and Passau are commonly start and finishing points of cruises visiting Melk and many cruises visit the highlights of Linz, Austria & Bratislava, Slovakia as well.
