This exhibition is a repeated one in the Albertina museum and I enjoyed to walk there just for one exhibition at a time. This museum is arranged well to provide the feeling you can almost touch the painting and feel the paint. If you have one hour spare, get there and enjoy it!

This museum offers the visitor an eclectic array of art from Warhol to Richter. It is located directly behind the Opera House. You can spend as long as you want, and it late June it wasn"t very crowded at all.

One of the great art galleries in Vienna. Very easy to find and also close by Hotel Sacher (where you can enjoy the Sachertorte and melange after visiting Albertina). The exhibitions are located on several floors, so be sure to check the map.

I've put average as different people like different things. I went to have a general look around and it was included in my Vienna Pass so nothing to lose money wise. The Lee Miller Photographic exhibition was fab but the rest was awful in my opinion, you may as well give children paint to throw at the walls. The building... More

The Albertina art gallery is easy to walk to from the centre of town. They have several exhibitions within the building but one ticket covers everything. The building is cool and well signed with everything in both German and English. There is a relaxed atmosphere which is very welcoming. We visited especially to see the Batliner collection.

Loved it! The permanent exhibition, "From Monet to Picasso", was set up very well so you know the progression of how the various art movements developed. I learned a lot through the audio guide, though it may be a bit long and boring if you are not interested in this kind of stuff. The temporary exhibition, "Drawing Now", which features... More

I was pleased to discover that this art museum offered several interesting exhibits at once. I enjoyed one titled 'Monet to Picasso' and another about watercolorists recording the lifestyles of the country in the early 19th century. While certainly no rival to the depth of collections elsewhere, they were well curated and displayed and offered interesting perspectives. The Albertina was... More

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.
