The legendary Wachau awaits you!
World heritage site and feel-good landscape - that is the Wachau, the narrow Danube valley between Melk and Krems. Exquisite wines are grown in this region on more than 1000 hectares.
Melk Abbey is one of the most beautiful and largest unified Baroque ensembles in Europe. Its magnificent architecture is known worldwide and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. More than 450,000 visitors come to Melk Abbey every year. Melk Abbey is situated at the western entrance to the Wachau cultural landscape on a rock above the town of Melk.
Benedictine monks have lived and worked at Melk Abbey in an uninterrupted tradition since 1089. Following the Rule of St. Benedict, they try to implement the ORA et LABORA et LEGE (pray and work and learn) in pastoral care, education (Abbey Grammar School) and cultural areas.
Stroll through the waltz metropolis of Vienna!
The Austrian capital is located in the centre of Europe and boasts impressive buildings, monuments and parks.
Our top 5 sights in Vienna:
- Schönbrunn Palace: Schönbrunn Palace is one of Vienna's sights and the largest palace in Austria. It was built in the 18th century for Empress Maria Theresa. Since 1996 it has also been part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.
- Hundertwasserhaus: What Gaudi is to Barcelona, Hundertwasser is to Vienna. The eccentric artist had his very own idea of ideal architecture. One of his first buildings was the Hundertwasserhaus.
- Vienna Prater: What Hamburg has its Reeperbahn, the Viennese have their Prater. For 250 years, the amusement park in the heart of the city has stood for fun and recreation. In addition to the famous amusement mile with its Ferris wheel, numerous green spaces and meadows are part of the 6 km² Prater. An untouched alluvial forest has become a popular recreation area in recent years. There are numerous sports facilities and sunbathing lawns.
- Vienna Albertina: The Vienna Albertina is one of the world's most important art museums in the Palais Erzherzog Albrecht (also known as Albrechtspalais), a historic Habsburg residence in Vienna's 1st district, right next to the Hofburg. The striking name Albertina will also adorn our first exclusive new ship, the MS ALBERTINA.
- Café Mozart: After so many impressive sights, you really deserve a break. For many Viennese, Café Mozart is the epitome of a Viennese coffee house. As early as 1794, there was a coffee house at this location. The café has borne the name Mozart since 1929. Tip: Try the incomparably delicious apple strudel.
