Mix of modern and impressionist works. A nice size - not big, but plenty to see and the imperial rooms tucked on the side too.

The museum is named after Duke Albert of Saxen-Teschen who resided here and started the art collection. Fun fact: he was the husband of Maria Tereza's favorite daughter, Maria Christina, the only one of the childern allowed to marry for love. Just thought that was romantic.

"From Monet to Picasso" is the title of the current exhibit, in which almost every single piece is of the highest quality, and several undoubtedly qualify as masterpieces.

This museum is housed in one of the loveliest buildings of Vienna. This palace was constructed,near the city walls and Hofburg, by a Count in 1744. Duke Albert of Saxe-Teschen, the son-in-law of Empress Maria Theresa, moved into it in 1794. He completely renovated the palace on neoclassical lines. He moved into it with his graphic art collection. Hence to... More

It's a fairly small museum, can be done in 2 hours or less. Audio guide is just ok, gives background on artists and description of the rooms of the palace, not a must though. The good paintings are on both sides on the top floor, Monet, Cezanne, Kandinsky, Warhol, Bacon and several Picasso's. The most famous ones are in the... More

Thank you terabyte01 - oh wow you mentioned the oval room! Yes there is a public bathroom, one would not really expect this in a historic state room! The walls of the Oval Cabinet are covered with emerald green wallpaper, entirely made by Hand (!!) like the original wallpaper from 1829. More

the Albertina has more state rooms to look through and it has very interesting panels of information to read in every room.

Definitely make a visit here. The collection is amazing and the building is just lovely. I really liked the expressionist exhibits.... Very meditative atmosphere. Worth the 12 or so Euros for the many masters in the collection.

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.
