Located in the largest of the Habsburg's residential palaces, the Albertina is home to the biggest and most valuable graphical collection in the world. See the permanent exhibition of the Batliner Collection, Monet to Picasso, 20 elegant staterooms, and more!
Get into the Habsburg's world of fine art and imperial majesty. The Albertina is a truly sumptuous museum experience. Situated in the very heart of Vienna's city center, the museum today owns masterpieces by Da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Dürer, Rubens.
But the highlight is surely the Batliner Collection, one of Europe's most important compilations of Modernist art. This permanent display features Impressionism and Post-Impressionism artists such as Monet, Degas, Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Gauguin, plus Picasso's early Cubist pictures, works of his from the 1940s, never-before-exhibited prints and experimental paintings.
Browse 20 exquisite Habsburg staterooms spread over two floors of the palace. The original Louis XVI décor was ordered from the royal court ateliers in Paris and Versailles for Duke Albert - so you know they're extra-fancy.
Don't miss the centerpiece; the elegantly be-chandeliered Hall of the Muses. Picture the parties that must have been held in this space as you box-step along the parquet floor.
With a heady mix of artistic achievement and royal opulence, the Albertina is an ideal p(a)lace to go and get swept up in the spirit of Vienna's imperial past.
