  • Seule restriction, le point de rendez-vous pour prendre l'autocar n'est pas assez précis, nous avons dû nous renseigner et chercher

  • Lieu de rendez-vous ambigu (près de la Südtiroler Platz, et non pas à la Südtiroler Platz). Visite du monastère de Melk intéressante. Conforme au descriptif de la brochure.
