The spectacular Melk Abbey provided plenty of eye-popping splendor on today’s tour. We found a delightful mix of the ultra-modern design and treasures from the past. The library was really stunning, but unfortunately, no photos were allowed. To give you some idea what it looked like, have a look at this amazing 3D shot of a similar library in the Czech Republic.

The most precious item in the Abbey – a portable altar dating from the eleventh century on display in the Green Room.

Spotted on the walk back to the ship from the Abbey. I especially like the knitted QR code. Unfortunately, my QR scanning app won’t scan the code. 🙁

Love the QR code. Have you scanned it yet?
