Really worth a visit

Huge range of art and when we visited there was an exhibition of Picassos and Monets. Well lighted and airy spaces, showing off the works really well.

This museum is truly one of a kind and the collections are really well displayed and chosen. The museum runs in a logical way and it is easy to find your way around. It was especially nice as it was air conditioned and most people were visiting outdoors so the museum was not very busy although it was august.

The Albertina museum has and incredible permanent collection, and, on top of that, it also has a temporary collection... I would seriously recommend visiting it if you enjoy this kind of activity.

Quite possibly the greatest collection in the world of Impressionist and early 20th Century art, housed in a beautiful 18th Century palace, with state rooms packed full of Old Masters. In other words, it's unique. My taste is more towards the modern, so I enjoyed the third floor more than the second. I found my enjoyment tempered by the frustration... More

We liked this museum. They have some great paintings, but the art museum part is pretty small as compared to many other museums throughout Europe. I was interested in the apartments, and concerned that they were closed the day we went. Apparently, they are not open every day of the week, but it's unclear to me if there is a... More

I would have given it 5* if it wasn't for the fact that they advertised the Picasso and Monet exhibition like crazy only to find there were only 2 Monet pieces. Still, a lovely place with lovely art.

Dear Noa-DR, Thank you for you visit! Dear Tripadvisors, please notice, that the permanent Exhibition of the Albertina is not an Exhibition of Monet and Picasso only. It is "From Monet to Picasso", which means that this exhibition covers the time between Monet and Picasso. Its permanent display starts off with such artists of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism as Monet, Renoir,... More

Visited the Albertina with particular interest in the exhibit From Monet to Picasso. Beautiful and interesting exhibit. Great value for money. Exhibits to suit all tastes - Monet, Picasso, Degas, Warhol and more. Open until 21.00 hrs on Wenesday which makes a very pleasant evening. Would recommend going.

Having a keen interest in the Impressionist/Expressionist style/movement I was eager to visit this attraction whilst in Vienna. I was not dissapointed, the Albertina is a wonderful museum and just large enough making it a very pleasant way of spending a couple of hours admiring some of the featured artists masterpieces. There's nothing else really to say except it's worth... More

Well worth the time and money, with many interesting and well presented exhibits. Easy to get to (directly opposite Hotel Sacher) and certainly a good place if the weather is not conducive to the usual walking tours of the city.

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.
