One of the best art galleries in the world

The Albertina is just packed with impressive art works. Get the audio guide and you could spend a month there and still not see it all.

The Albertina is still one of our favorite museums in Vienna. The permanent collections never disappoint and the exhibitions are all well organized and beautifully displayed. The building itself is gorgeous and rarely do you feel over crowded.

There is a great collection - you could admire Monet, Signac, Van Gogh, Serrat, and so much more. I highly reccomend it for impressionism lovers. The contemporary art exhibition is not to my taste but we found particular fun at gazing the "black on black" and seeing how everybody took picture of it (although it is not allowed) :)

Wow we just loved this museum! The staterooms were so beautiful - you could almost imagine living there. The flow of the museum was great and without even being aware of it one of my favourite works of art, Durer's hare was on display (well a facsimile, but good enough for me.) The shop offered up some lovely choices for... More

We were at very rich exhibition "Monet bis Picaso". And the state rooms are very impressive. The only problem was that air condition was freezing.

Hi Anna F thank you for taking time to share your feedback. Yes the air condition sometimes, if sun is nice and warm outside, and humidity is rather high - 23 degree celsius inside feels like it would be minus 5 celsius.. *brrrr* More

We really enjoyed this museum. The art is wonderful. The museum is well taken care of. We especially enjoyed touring the rooms with the furniture. The rooms were almost as good as those in Schonbrunn, and there were no crowds to deal with,

The gallery is conveniently located at the main tourist area so you don't need to make a special trip for it. The exhibits are smaller and there are no major works there. However, it is well organized and does not take you a long time to finish. It is a nice break from your day long shopping, plus there is... More

The Albertina is a world class museum inside (e.g. they have Albrecht Dürer's famous "Rabbit"), with always exciting special exhibitions. Since an refurbishment some 20 years ago also the outside of the museum is really remarkable. Albertina is located on the backside of the Opera, close to the famous shopping street Kärntner Straße.

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.
