A wonderful museum where one can enjoy both temporary and permanent art exhibitions. It´s a joy to the senses. It takes about 3 hours to completely enjoy the art in this place. It is definitely a must!

Visiting this gallery was one of my favourite activities in Vienna. It's quite an eclectic place. The upper building is a former palace and is very opulently decorated. You can enjoy the building as a beautiful piece of heritage as well as the art. On the top floor is a special gallery dedicated to Monet and Picasso, which I enjoyed.... More

Such a beautiful museum with an amazing collection! One of the best in Europe for me so far. In the heart of Vienna, it is definitely one of the "can't miss" attractions in Vienna

The Albertina is right in the heart of Vienna. The posters promising Monet and Picasso drew me to this exhibition. While there is no shortage of great impressionist painters on display, there is but a few monet and Picasso paintings. You will not be disappointed with getting a audio guide and wandering the expansive halls and learning about the life... More

What a superb exhibition. We'd never seen some of the painting before. The extent of the range of painters and their pictures is remarkable. Thoroughly recommended.

If it wasn't so cold inside the gallery, I could pay more attention to the paintings. Outside was 35 degrees celsius (middle of july), but inside was like 16. I was freezing after 2 minutes. I couldn't resist more than 30 minutes. I liked some paintings very much. I could support the heat from other museums from Vienna, by buying... More

Permanent exhibitions poor (maybe my standards are high). To put one draw by Durer and to call it "Durer collection"... Coffee is great (really!) and so are Demel's cakes. The temporary drawing exhibition downstairs is unique, if you are into 21th art.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.
