Very good museum (and not too big) with some great artefacts and exhibitions. The Austrian aristocracy really knew how to live! Fantastic statue to the front. Great views of the opera house. Part of the Vienna Pass collection of attractions (allowed to jump the queue here, for Fast Track entry). 1-2 hours should just about cover a visit.

TIP: The outside of the museum has a lovely view over the opera and Hotel Sacher, it's especially nice with the sun hitting the buildings later in the day. Also, make sure when you walk down the staircase to leave you turn around and look back up. It has a photo of the Alps on the risers, which is really... More

The Albertina is not to be missed. This is a treasure trove of performance and the arts. A celebration of Viennese music and if all forms if expressive and visual arts.

If you are a fan of Impressionism, then you will really love this museum. There is a nice collection of Monet which is beautiful to see. There is also a nice collection of Pablo Picasso paintings which are very unique. Even if you're not much into impressionism, for now there is a very neat collection of postmodernism and popart like... More

If you like impressionism you should not miss Albertina. Beside the permanent exhibition they always have temporary exhibition of different themes. If you do not have much time for museums you can enjoy a lot art in a short time in Albertina.

always something interesting here- traveling or special exhibits and they have quite a good perm collection too - I always discover something new when i visit- the galleries are large and open allowing for good flow which is important when the museum has crowds.

If you have three hours to spend in Vienna I suggest you go to Albertina. While Dürer's, Raphael's and other priceless works of art in the State Rooms are faccimiles, pieces in other exhibitions aren't and are a joy to behold. Just get the audio guide and let it lead you through the palace and through artwork of Batliner collection... More

We were drawn to the Albertina by the outside architecture and the advertisements of their Impressionist exhibit. We were very disappointed as the art pieces were unremarkable for the most part.

Really enjoyed this museum, with a good few truly great pieces that were well captioned. The place was set out nicely and helped thin out the large numbers. Would recommend if you have a few hours to spare

There have always been good exhibitions in Albertina. Right now you can see all the state rooms in their full glory and some world famous drawings by Raphaello, Michaelangelo and Dürer. On the top of that there is a very good exhibition of the painters from Monet to Picasso. Definitely worth a visit.

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.
