Albertina Art Gallery


Museums All Top Attractions

As the largest Hapsburg residential palace, the Albertina dominates the southern tip of the Imperial Palace on one of the last remaining fortress walls in Vienna. The collection, which was established 18th century y Duke Albert of Saxony-Teschen, a son-in-law of Empress Maria Theresia, includes over one million prints and 60,000 drawings. Its most famous pieces are Dürer's 'Hare' and his 'Hands folded in prayer', or Rubens' studies of children as well as masterpieces by Schiele, Cézanne, Klimt, Kokoschka, Picasso and Rauschenberg. All of these are displayed in the rotating exhibitions. Whenever you visit - you will get awarded by being able to see some excellent masterpieces!

On permanent display in the Albertina's new exhibition collection you find the most exciting art movements of the last 130 years: from French impressionism to German expressionism to the Russian avant garde and the present. Monet's 'Water Lily Pond', Degas' 'Dancers' and Renoir's 'Girl' can be admired. A real treat!

Don't forget to check out the imperial rooms while you are there - they are worth a quick visit (included in the ticket price). The staterooms were lived in by the favorite daughter of Empress Maria Theresia, Archduchess Marie-Christine, and later by her adopted son, Archduke Karl. The staterooms in shining yellow, green and turquoise, partly furnished with original furniture will give you a feel what Habsburg life was all about. Have a look at the entire gilding of the carvings and the artistic parquet floors - they are absolutely wonderful!
