The Benedictine Abbey was founded in the 12th century and is the oldest continuously operating school in Austria.
900 lucky co-educational pupils attend school here.
The Abbey over looks the The Danube River,
and the medieval town of Melk which was the center of intellectual life in Austria in the middle ages.
It is off the beaten tourist path in November and is a wonderful place to explore.
Melk is in the Wachau Valley section of The Danube River which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Cheers to you from the stunning Wachau Valley~
