Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and resulting government regulations we can’t guarantee that guided tours are possible. Your required service will be noted and will take place if government regulations and organizational possibilities on site allow. This refers specifically to reservations for guided tours for groups. We reserve the right to offer an individual visit without a guide for guests/groups that have booked a guided tour. Thank you for your understanding!

Until further notice guided visits for groups are not possible. A visit of Melk abbey is possible every day, without a guided tour.

Persons who are not members of the same household have to respect a minimum distance of 2 m / 6.6 ft between each other. If it is not possible to keep this minimum distance, guests need to wear their own visors or protective masks which cover the mouth and the nose. We highly recommend the use of face masks or visors during the guided tour.
