Melk and a Taste of Austria!
Thursday, July 23, 2015
This morning, Viking River Cruises’ Viking Lofn arrived in Melk, Austria as our 15-day Grand European Tour to Budapest enters the home stretch. Actually, we’re not in Melk at all – but across the river in Emmersdorf. The realities of river cruising in the summertime: you may not always be docked right in town.
Of course, the thing to do in Melk is to take part in Viking’s tour of the imposing Melk Abbey, the canary-yellow superstructure of which lords over the town of Melk like a king surveying his fiefdom.
