Permanent Collection

The Albertina boasts one of Europe's most impressive permanent collections of modern art, featuring works by such luminaries as Picasso, Monet, Klee, Matisse and countless others.

Print Room and Graphic Art Collection

The world-famous print room houses a graphic arts collection comprised of over one million pieces, ranging from the Gothic to the modern era, from Dürer to Cézanne.

Photographic Collection

The photographic collection is one the Albertina's lesser-known treasures. Stretching back to the mid-19th century, it constitutes a photographic chronicle of the last 150 years.

Temporary Exhibitions

The Albertina constantly hosts temporary and wonderfully curated exhibitions, which either focus on a chosen theme or explore the work of a specific artist.

Habsburg State Rooms

The recently renovated state rooms are a wonder to behold. The 21 lavish rooms offer the fascinating opportunity of traveling back in history to the time of the Habsburgs.

Albertina: Our Tips

Where to eat

To grab a bite to eat, there is a popular café and restaurant in the Albertina. However, if you want to discover something new, head to the Palmenhaus around the corner. Located in a gigantic and recently renovated greenhouse from the early 19th century, the Palmenhaus is one of Vienna's most gorgeous restaurants.

Keep discovering the world of the Habsburgs

The Albertina is just one small part of the giant Hofburg Palace complex. If the Albertina's state rooms didn't quench your thirst for Habsburg knowledge, make sure to visit the rest of the palace, which boasts countless more treasures and secrets from the imperial family.

What People Are Saying About Albertina

Good investment esp with travel component

Excellent . With the travel component was able to use public transport often and with ease. Also able to access the museums easily . Only point is that in a number of them you still need to line up and get a ticket and others they just scan the pass and you ate in

Great value travel card. Very easy to get around Vienna and so handy!

Was very handy purchasing this card online and picking it up at the arrivals hall in Vienna Airport. Please note this travel card does not cover airport to Vienna city centre trains so there will be extra fees for that but as there were 4 of us we arranged for taxi's. Using the travel card was very easy. We got a 72hour card and it lasted us for the weekend. Vienna is quite easy to get around using public transport. Would highly recommend it.

Stressfree, convenient way to access the excellent transport network

There is an excellent, integrated transport network in Vienna. Having the Vienna Card meant we could move smoothly between different attractions and our accommodation. There was always some transport at hand, underground, tram, bus or a combination. We also saved some money on coffees and entry fees. We strongly recommend purchasing the card to anyone in Vienna for two or three days.
