This is a fantastic art museum, not just for the works by well-known artists (Picasso, Chagall, Monet, Klimt), but for those surprise treasures that made our visit more memorable: the intricate Loder watercolours, the lovely dark Degas monotypes... they even had a wonderful little Arthur Rackham :) We went right at opening time (10am) on a rainy Friday, but so...

Whenever you go, always expect to see outstanding and worl-famous art. Totally worth a visit if you cherich modern art of the 19th-20th centuries. Plus specific exhibitions of other epoques and artists. A nice museum shop - most of our gifts from Vienna come from there.

Had a few hours to spare before flying home to visited the art gallery and the Imperial rooms. Whatever your taste in art, then I am sure you would find something to enjoy. There is a café to help with refreshments after all the stairs and walking around. The bonus of seeing the Imperial rooms was good to.

Of contemporary, modern, and masterworks. Although not the Louvre, National Gallery, MoMA, d'Orsay, or Rijksmuseum, the collections stand on their own as both fine examples, and varied enough to express a wide swath of art forms. It's not large, so don't plan an entire day around it, but if you have a morning, go in early before the crowds gather,... More

The lovely colourful rabbits that lead you to the Albertina are possibly the best things about the experience for me. Sure some great artists are represented here, Cezanne, Picasso, Chagal, Warhol but to name a few, but lets face it, what you get is 2nd ro 3rd rate works by 1st great artists.

This was the highlight of an otherwise cold, windy, and dull trip (no flowers or green trees yet). hint: the cloakroom 2 lockers are free, the Cloakroom 1 at the entrance (with a person) is currently 50 cents.

The Albertina is one of my favourite places in Vienna. Especially at night it is very beautiful to be there. The view and the lightning of the building is breathtaking. It is a good place to take pictures.

Collection on the top floor is fabulous and shouldn't be missed. Lots of lesser-known pieces from all the big names and nice and quiet on a Sunday morning.

This is an exceptional museum with an exceptional collection especially the Batliner collection. Then museum is very well thought out and showcases a broad range of prominent works by major artists. Also you are allowed to take pictures without flash!

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
