Arrived in Melk during night. Went for a fabulous tour of the Melk Abbey. it is the home to Benedictine Monks about 30. Used to house over 100. It is currently used as a school for 900 children. it is an amazing place and tourists help fund the running of the school and maintaining the place. Last week of school holidays so didnt see students. we walked back to the ship through the streets.
After lunch 15 people (Not including us) rode bikes to our next stop in the afternoon Durnstein a lovely village. Visited the village at our own pace as was very small. Very hilly but the lower levels still flood. Amazing the levels of the 2013 floods.
Set off today for Vienna.
