Consider picking up an audio guide for an additional fee of €4. The quality of the recording is very good, and the content doesn’t tend to overlap with the short written texts next to certain pieces of art. Texts are provided in English and German, the audio guide is available in English, German, Italian, and Russian.
Lines to buy tickets on the day can stretch all the way down the steps at the front of the building, especially during rainy days in spring and summer, so buy your tickets in advance to skip the queue!
Make sure to pause outside the entrance of the museum, which is on top of a surviving part of the city fortifications, to get a great photo of the Vienna Opera and the Hotel Sacher. It’s particularly lovely as the sun sets!

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s there to see at the Albertina?

The permanent collection of the Albertina is home to works of art by modern and contemporary painters and sculptures, from Monet and Degas to Picasso, Magritte, Miró, and Giacometti. It’s also home to drawings and sketches by Dürer, Michelangelo, Raphael, and famous Austrian artists Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt.

Aside from the artworks in the gallery, guests can explore the sumptuous State Rooms which were once home to Habsburg Archdukes and Archduchesses. Read more.

Why is it called the Albertina?

The name of the Albertina was officially given to the building in 1921, after the building and its art collection were given to the Republic of Austria after the dissolution of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and its monarchy. The collection is named after Duke Albert of Sachsen-Teschen who both lived in the building and was gifted a large part of the collection by a Genoese count in 1776. He developed the collection to trace the development of European art from the late Middle Ages onwards, and at the time of his death in 1822 the collection was made up of 14,000 drawings and around 200,000 graphic art prints. While the majority of guests enjoy the recent additions of Impressionist and modern art, it’s the collection of sketches and prints that really forms the foundation of the gallery. Read more.

Can I take photographs?

Photography for personal use is permitted throughout the Albertina, though visitors are asked not to use flash, tripods, or selfie-sticks. This might not apply to all exhibitions, there will be signs if photography isn’t allowed in a particular room of the gallery. If you want to take photographs or film for commercial reasons, please contact the gallery to discuss permission. Please note that you’re not allowed to take calls on mobile phones in the exhibition areas - if you do need to answer then you’ll be asked to move to the corridor to avoid disturbing other visitors. Read more.

Can I sketch in the gallery?

Guests are allowed to draw using a pencil and a pad of paper only (maximum A4 size) as long as the museum is not too crowded. Visitors are asked not to bring other materials into the exhibition halls, and not to sit or lie down on the floor to sketch as it interrupts the flow of other visitors moving through the gallery. Read more.

How long will a visit to the Albertina take?

It depends on how interested you are in all the different art forms on display. If you’re only interested in the main collection of paintings, sculptures, and sketches you can breeze through the museum in less than 2 hours. If you also want to see the photography and architecture exhibits, plus any temporary exhibits, you could spend up to 4 hours inside. Read more.
