About: Melk Abbey

Melk Abbey is a remarkable Benedictine abbey, towering over the town of Melk in Austria's Wachau Valley. You might look at the abbey's Baroque grandeur and wonder if it's all a little excessive for people of the cloth. The abbey you see today was actually built in the early 18th century as a royal palace, on the site of an ancient monastery.

The abbey is well known for its library, which houses over 100,000 rare and valuable books. The main hall shows off just a percentage, but you certainly get the idea as you gaze at 16,000 volumes and a wonderfully frescoed ceiling. You can take in centuries of art and religious antiquity on a guided tour of this magnificent monastery.

Located on the grounds of the imperial summer palace, Tiergarten Schönbrunn is the oldest zoo in the world - and yet still frequently voted one of the world's best. The zoo was founded as an imperial menagerie in 1752, by the then Holy Roman Emperor, Francis I. It was opened to the public in 1779. The Tiergarten has an amazing array of animals (more than 700 species in all).

The world-famous Spanish Riding School is the training ground for riders and their Lipizzan horses - Europe's oldest breed of horse. It's located between Michaelerplatz and Josefsplatz inside the Hofburg, in central Vienna. The 'Spanish' in the title refers to the Spanish heritage of the horses. This beautiful building has been an equestrian training center for more than 450 years. Guests can enter and watch these amazing horses learn the ropes and reins, in preparation for their performances in the Winter Riding School (Winterreitschule) in the Hofburg.

The Belvedere Palace is in fact two palaces: the Upper and Lower, both of which were built by Prince Eugene of Savoy. These Habsburg palaces are the centerpieces of gorgeously landscaped gardens, with tiered fountains and statues nestled in the greenery. Both palaces are filled with priceless art in the permanent collections (including Gustav Klimt's The Kiss), as well as changing exhibitions.
