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.

The Exhibit was on a smaller scale to those of London and Paris, but still worth a visit. We used our Vienna pass which got us in for free and you could also take photos without flash.

Just a fabulous experience at a smaller museum. Essentially 4 floors and you can see most things in two to three hours. Was there during a special Van Gogh exhibit, fantastic. Monet's, Picasso's, Chagall's and many more.

The Albertina is a kind of very easy museum to visit. Now is ideal for Pointillism and Impressionism lovers. Also an impressive collection of neo-classical statues give a sense of royalty to the whole environment.

The Albertina is currently hosting an exhibition which includes works by Monet and Van Gough as well as a host of works by other notable artists. The exhibit flows really well, accommodating a reasonable sized flow of visitors with ease. The space is tastefully lit and some imaginative colour has been used in certain rooms to accentuate the works. The... More

We spent an enjoyable afternoon at the Albertina. The audio guide is nice to have. It's a small collection relative to other museums in the city but a carefully chosen one. The building itself is not nearly as spectacular as some of the other museums. Fewer crowds and a great location are definitely pluses.

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.
