One of many nice old buildings in the town of Melk. Worth a look and a photograph. It was built in 1575 but was redesigned 150 years ago. An elaborate door is interesting

Outside the Altes Rathaus are the High Water Marks showing the floods across the ages - very interesting and amazing it's a way of life here. The Rathaus Platz is also quaint.

this is an historic and lovely town right next to the Danube. So worth taking the walking tour for the sights and the history. Love the neo gothic tower of the Old Town Hall

The town Hall has a tall tower with special marking to measure the height of the water that covered the place. It is unique but of great importance since Passau is situated where the three rivers met. The rivers Donau, Ilz and Inn. The interior...More

Located in the center of town, dating from the end of the 14th century. At the front entrance is a high water measure. Passau sits at the confluence of the Inn, Danube and the Ilz rivers and has had some major flooding over the years....More
