The locationSince centuries a place of hospitality and service at the slope of the Monastery Melk
Our house was already known in the 15th century as “Stiftstaverne” – (tavern of the monastery), a place for travelers and voyagers. Franz Mungenast, architect of the monastery and his son in law Jakob Prandtauer (architect who is responsible for the actual architecture of the Monastery Melk) rebuilt it into a baroque building.
The street “Sterngasse “ is the oldest street of the city. Today it is a pedestrian zone. Right from our house is the old post office of Meek. It is said that “Richard Löwenherz” stayed there over night as he was taken prisoner. Old frescos with a lion behind prison bars remind you about that famous historical time.
The train station and the ship’s station are nearby, only a few minutes to walk from our house.
If you arrive with your car or your motorcycle, you should drive slowly in the pedestrian zone to our house. When you tell us in advance that you will arrive with a car, we try to reserve for you a parking place in front of our hotel. Another parking possibility is only a few minutes to walk away. If you arrive with your bicycle we have a separate place for it in the inner court of our hotel.
