Upon entering Weissenkirchen, be sure to look out for the magnificent baroque Stiftskirche of Dürnstein, with its blue façade.  This afternoon, an included guided visit of the magnificent Benedictine Abbey in Melk acquaints you with one of Europe’s largest monasteries.

A behind-the-scenes peek to learn about some of the curiosities of this rococo-style, 167-seat theater will certainly tell you much about life as it was—and as it now is in this small town. The turreted houses on the main square make excellent photo subjects.  Linz is Austria’s third-largest city and an important river port where culture plays a significant role in everyday life. This afternoon is free to do as you like. Simply relax on board, choose from a variety of optional excursions, or explore Linz on your own. See the 13th-century Hauptplatz, Austria’s largest medieval square, and the Trinity Column, built in 1723 as thanks for the city escaping the ravages of the plague, war, and fire. Perhaps wander around the old castle grounds and take in the beautiful views of the river, or visit the neo-gothic New Cathedral, Austria’s largest church, with capacity for 20,000 visitors.
