Owner description: Situated in the very heart of Vienna's City center, the Albertina houses one of the most important art collections of the world. Founded in 1776, the Museum today owns masterpieces by Da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Duerer, Rembrandt etc. These collections are presented in temporary exhibitions. The Batliner Collection "From Monet to Picasso" is permanentely on display and shows the most important works by artists from the age of modernism. The Habsburg Historic Staterooms of the Albertina give an air of Imperial glamour.

The Albertina may be overshadowed by the Kunst Historisches Museum and the Museum Quarter, but it is a fine museum, with an interesting permanent collection and frequently excellent shows downstairs. da Vinci, Michaelangelo, and Raphael drawings. Durer. Lots of stuff about the Duke and the Hapsburgs around 1780 (pretty uninteresting to me -- so I skipped it, except to inhale the sense of empire in the collection), Picasso, Klee, Modigliani, a fascinating room of Russians (ca. 1900-25), did I say Picasso -- one room has two Klee, a Bacon, and maybe a dozen Picassos -- you could spend all day there. Excellent late 19th/early 20th century German paintings.
Don't miss it.

To think that in four days in Vienna we almost missed this gem. Given other "priorities" (which should have been lower) and a thunderously rainy afternoon, we arrived at the Albertina less than an hour before closing. We rushed a bit but still managed to see the core collection, including the fabulous Durer , Da Vinci and other prints. So give this more time and put it at the top of your list for Vienna. If I had had more time, I believe it likely that I would have profited by getting the audio guide. There's so much to see in Vienna. I'd have in retrospect to put the Albertina at the top of my list, although the Treasury and the National Library, for instance, weren't shabby either. Read and believe some of the other more articulate glowing and recent "excellent" reviews. While we spent less than an hour, obviously 2-3 hours would be ideal.

Located in the heart of the city, this place really offers a wide range exhibitions accessible to the most and less educated.
Whether you only like to see some exhibitions or you are a fan of a precise artist you always find the right exhibition.
The set-up is usually very clever which avoids affluence in front of certain pièces.
Apart from the beautiful permanent collection (from Monet to Picasso) I personally appreciate the photography exhibitions there, the lighting is always very well set.
You can take a guided tour and audio guides are also available in numerous languages.
Definitely recommend!

When doing my research for this trip, the Albertina didn't hit my radar. However, I wandered in one rainy afternoon, and was so glad I did. The Durer exhibit was incredible, and the museum has a ton of amazing art collections. I went to Schonbrunn, Belvedere, Hofberg, Kunsthistorisches Museum... Albertina was the best!
