Melk is a Danube River cruise port and town in Lower Austria (Wachau Valley) with population around 6,000. The town lies between two small rivers (Melk and Pielach/Danube tributaries). Melk Abbey (monastery) is part of the city and on a mountain that drops steeply towards Danube. The downtown stretches down the flat western slope. Pochlarn is approx 15 km (9 mi) to the west along the river.
