We loved visiting the Albertina. So many beautiful pieces of art, well-presented and an inviting space. We felt really welcome and even stopped to draw several times with no feeling we had to move on. It was busy but not overwhelmingly so. Great shop and what looked like a good restaurant cafe - we decided to get a hotdog outside... More

Expect a queue so be there early. Fantastic interior for this gallery. To see the content of the exhibitions was a privilege and brought to life the works of Monet to Picasso, Egon Schiele and the evolution of art and photography.

Was impressed from the moment we saw the "painting" on the outside stair case. Enjoyed old masters and newer painters. Easy to get around, lots to see.

This museum had, for me, two very interesting exhibitions: The photography exhibition "acting for the camera" at ground level and at the top level the Monet to Picasso. The palace rooms were interesting, and the art pieces at the final room are quite impressive. The retrospective on Egon Schiele is quite complete, but it's not on my list of favorite... More

What a brilliant collection. Highly recommend a visit here on any visit to Vienna. One downside is staff could be a bit more clued up and friendly.

If I return to Vienna, I probably won't visit the Hofburg or Belvedere again.... but I would definitely go back to Albertina. Absolutely one of the best in the world. Open till 9pm on Wednesdays.

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.
