AUSTRIA - STIFT MELK Another “gemutlichkeit” day in the Austrian Danube cities, towns, monasteries, abbeys and cliff-sides. We started early with our visit to Stift Melk, after having been here 20 years ago. Our approach was quite different from before (when we walked up through the tiny town) and because we actually got inside the Church, the Library, and the imperial guestrooms where many public displays of monastery history now reside.
Based in this Benedictine monastery where they claim to have a “fingernail size” piece of the True Cross as their holiest relic. The displays are interesting and informative, using modern technology to demonstrate changes in the façade, holographs to picture
