The Albertina Museum
Once the residence of Habsburg archdukes and archduchesses, the Albertina Museum of Vienna encompasses five different collections: paintings & sculpture, drawings & prints, photography, architecture and state rooms. Inside, you’ll have the opportunity to gaze at colorful paintings from artists like Monet and Picasso, glance at sketches drawn by Klimt and Dürer, check out incredible black and white photography from the likes of Trcka and Brassaï, and walk through 20 intricately adorned and restored Habsburg State Rooms, complete with sculptures and glittering chandeliers. This incredible collection of historic European art is located less than a mile from the Danube banks and is more than worthy of a visit.
