The Albertina is noted for having one of the largest collections of prints and drawings in Europe but it is much more. The rooms are stunning, there is an excellent photo collection and a strong collection of paintings

Stopped by primarily to see the Lee Miller exhibit which was good, but perhaps I was expecting a bit much from her. Some of the most compelling photos were of her as a SUBJECT of Man Ray, her mentor and lover of three years. The 'Neck' photo is so sensuously beautiful. Her war photography photos were amazing- stark, direct and... More

Contemporary art, usually with some surprises. The treat this time was the Lee Miller photographic exhibition. Excellent.

I enjoyed my visit here as not only did I see excellent artwork but also the furnished staterooms. The staterooms were beautifully done lovely colours and furniture to see. The art collection included Monet, Piicassos, Cezane and other masters. Also a collection of modern art which was also really interesting. I had a Vienna pass and it was one of... More

We actually headed for the Haus de Musik, but it was closed for some reason - ended up wandering back towards the Hofburg, walked past the Albertina and decided to go in. Had a brilliant afternoon of real surprises... The Lee Miller photos are stunning - especially of the very moving ones taken at the end of WW2. However the... More

The staterooms were great. Not as impressive as Schonbrunn. Small collection of Monet and Picasso as well as a Warhol. I was most impressed by the Lee Miller photography collection, very moved by her work in 1945 post war period. Not a super busy museum compared the ones in Paris, so we weren't constantly blocked by people taking pictures of... More

Art is subjective and it there is no right or wrong. We visit the Albertina most trips to Vienna so know it well. Unusually, this time there were two modern exhibitions that were not to our taste. There was also "Bacon, Warhol and Richter" that we enjoyed even though there was only a single Bacon! But this was compensated by... More

The Albertina is a squint building - fitting into it's corner site opposite the tourist information. Famous for Durer's hare, you will be lucky to see this as he only comes out twice every decade. However there is a Picasso/Monet exhibit on at the moment and a Warhol one. I would rate them 1: Monet, and 2: Picasso. The gallery... More

One of the many museums in central Vienna but this is for modern art. The outside of the building looks good. Very specialise not suitable for everyone to Vienna.

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.
