Melk has been a spiritual and cultural center of the country for more than 1000 years, first as a castle for the Babenbergs, then from 1089 as a Benedictine monastery, founded by Margrave Leopold II. For over 900 years monks have continued in the tradition of St. Benedict without interruption in the fields of parish life, school, economy, culture, and tourism. You will enjoy a guided tour of the Abbey.

You return to Vienna to visit Schloss Schoenbrunn. The imperial Palace of Schönbrunn is one of the most important cultural monuments in Austria. Protected by a preservation order, the whole ensemble, which includes the palace, the park with its fountains, statues and architectural features as well as the zoo, the oldest of its kind still in use in its original function, was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List at the end of 1996.
