Pink Saturday at Stift Melk, Austria

If ever in Austria, please go here: Stift Melk. The barock jewel of the Donau Niederoesterreich (Danube Inferior Austria) area. A monument of art and culture, as well as a place of worship: the art - the voice of the divine speaking through and to mankind.
Infos here (the site of the Stift Melk) and here (the site of the National Austrian Tourism Office).

  3. Incredible! Also, you must consider that this is an abbey, not a castle!

  4. Lara,
    these are truly beautiful images of a great place, thank you for sharing them! I have never visited the monastery itself, but it is on my must-visit list. Every time I visited Austria during the summers, year after year I pointed Stift Melk out to my then small children when it came within sight on the West-Autobahn. They are not so small anymore and now it is a running joke between us that they start shouting unisono "Look, mom, Stift Melk" as soon as they spot it. ;-)
