Melk Abbey

The ochre-colored Abbey of Melk dominates the hill upon which it sits, high above the small town of the same name. This place was the primary residence of the noble Babenburg family, the first Germanic rulers of Austria in the 9th century. When they moved to Vienna, the Babenburgs founded a Benedictine monastery here in 1089.
