I seem to remember it was about 3 Euro pp ..we did not use it as our tour was included
Thanks for the replies. We are cruising with TUI and the tours are not included. We thought maybe we could walk up the hill or grab a taxi and tour around on our own. Would this be recommended or is a tour a better way to see the abbey.When we were there on our Viking cruise, we rode up and had a very nice walk down through the town. Saw no need for a taxi.
Is the abbey a walkable distance from the dock? We would prefer to walk if possible.We were there last month and we took the included bus ride up and I took the bus back down. My husband walked down and he is a fast walker and it took him 30 minutes walking through the wooded trail. I did not see any taxis. I would not be comfortable walking up the road since it has turns and traffic. You need to consider how long the boat is docked at Melk. We had a window of time to see the Abbey and then to get back before sailing.
