Melk Abbey

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are trying to go to the Melk Abbey in late March. I have already requested to book the guided tour, and have a hotel reservation in Melk for the overnight trip.

My problem is that I am trying to decide whether to get to Melk from Vienna by car or train. I cannot tell from the maps how far the train station is from the Abbey, although their website states that you can walk to it. The car would be the most convenient option, but the lowest price I can get (AutoEurope) is $200 for the rental. The train would come in at about 65 Euros, plus taxis to and from the train stations.

We are spending our last night at a hotel airport in Vienna, so we would either return the car there or, if travelling by train, go from the train station in Vienna to the airport by taxi.

Can anyone tell me, from their past experiences, which was a better option for you? I'm trying to get validation for spending the extra $$ on the car, or find out whether it is not necessary. Thanks in advance.
