The Albertina in Vienna houses one of the largest art galleries in Austria, with an impressive collection of Impressionist art as well as art from the early 20th century - including works by Picasso, Magritte, Monet and Marc Chagall. Thanks to various temporary exhibitions, photographs and architecture are just as often in the spotlight at the historic museum. Also, a new branch called Albertina modern, which focuses entirely on modern art, has opened not far from the main building.

Waiting lines are long, especially during peak season, so book tickets in advance. Tickets for the Albertina as well as the Albertina modern must be purchased separately.

1
Keep an eye on the exhibitions Neben einer Dauerausstellung mit vielen Klassikern der Mal- und Zeichenkunst vom 15. Jahrhundert bis heute bietet die Albertina auch ständige Wechselausstellungen zu verschiedenen Themen sowie eine Foto- und Architektursammlung. Erkundige dich vor deinem Besuch also darüber, welche aktuellen Spezialausstellungen möglicherweise für dich interessant sein könnten.

2
Save money with the Vienna PassThose who plan a long visit of Vienna with visits to multiple attractions and museums are well advised to get the so-called Vienna Pass. The entry to the Albertina without queuing is included as well as several other attractions.
3
Avoid queuesLines to buy tickets on site can stretch all the way down the stairs in front of the entrance, especially on rainy days in the spring and summer. Book your tickets in advance to avoid standing in line.
4
Do not confuse with Albertina modernBeware: The Albertina is not the same as the Albertina modern. The latter is a new location, not far from the Albertina proper. As the name suggests, the new branch focuses entirely on modern art. Tickets for the Albertina modern must be purchased separately, but can also be redeemed online in advance.
5
Don't forget your cameraPhotography is permitted in the Albertina - but without flash, tripods or selfie sticks! Photos for commercial use need a special permission. By the way, there are also many great photo motifs outside the Albertina. At the Vienna Hofburg, where the entrance to the museum is located, you can take excellent photos of the Vienna State Opera and the Hotel Sacher. A special highlight is the scenery at sunset.
6
Don't forget the impressive state roomsIn addition to classical pictorial art, the Albertina also contains lots of the old Viennese splendor. After all, the museum is housed in the Palais Erzherzog Albrecht; guests can therefore visit the former state staterooms of the Habsburgs. The living quarters of Archduchess Marie-Christine and Archduke Charles, decorated in impressive colors and with original furniture, can be visited with the same ticket that is valid for the art exhibitions.

7
Observe the house rulesAs in other art museums, it is customary at the Albertina to keep quiet and not touch any works of art. Talking on the phone is prohibited in the exhibition rooms. Luggage, such as large backpacks, must be stowed at the entrance to avoid unintentionally damaging the exhibits. Staff members in the exhibition rooms therefore occasionally check that all guests adhere to these rules.

Visit the caféShould you need a meal break, the Café DO & CO inside the museum offers a variety of culinary specialties from Vienna. Table reservations are recommended, so if you want to dine at the museum, plan so in advance.

A brief history of the Albertina

The Albertina is one of the most important sights of Vienna with more than one million visitors per year. So that you are not overwhelmed on site, we offer you a short outline of the most important facts about the Albertina.

An exhibition full of masterpieces

The Albertina's permanent collection includes art by quite a few modern and contemporary masters, such as Monet, Degas, Picasso, Magritte and Miró. Drawings in the graphic collection are by Michelangelo, Dürer or Raphael, but also by Austrian artists, including Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt, Gottfried Helnwein and Valie Export.

The origins of the impressive art collection

The Albertina received its name in 1921, when the building and its art collection became the property of the newly founded Republic of Austria. The collection is named after Duke Albert of Saxe-Teschen, who received a large part of the art collection as a gift from a Genoese count in 1776. He eventually laid out the ever-growing collection in such a way that it traced the development of European art from the late Middle Ages. When he died in 1822, the collection already included 14,000 drawings and 200,000 prints. While today mainly impressionist and modern art is exhibited, the drawings and prints still form the basis of the collection.

Second location: Albertina modern

Since 2020, the Albertina modern displays contemporary artworks on more than 2,000 m² (21,500 ft²). The museum's second location in the historic Künstlerhaus Wien is a 10-minute walk away on Karlsplatz and features contempurary works by artists like Erwin Wurm, Andy Warhol, Georg Baselitz, and Maria Lassnig.

Location next to Vienna

But the Albertina modern was not the end of the museum’s renewal efforts. In 2022, the Albertina announced its next branch in Klosterneuburg. Since the collection has grown so quickly, the decision was made to open this third location called Albertina Klosterneuburg Essl Museum. The Lower Austrian municipality adjoins Vienna directly to the north on the eastern bank of the Danube and is quickly accessible by train.
