    A Must-Visit for Art-Lovers

    Is it an art museum inside a palace? Or a palace inside an art museum? Hardly any other place in Vienna combines historical charm and cultural experiences like ALBERTINA museum. The famous gallery, attracting visitors from all over the world, is housed in a magnificent building just a stone's throw from the Viennese State Opera, which belonged to the Habsburg family in former times. Think of it as an art experience (with your own smartphone guide) and a palace tour (including the original state rooms!) both in one - it really can't get any more Austrian! And have we mentioned the sun terrace boasting unique views over the city where you can enjoy a coffee or even a yoga session?

    But there's more: The museum's sister ALBERTINA modern, a gallery for contemporary Austrian and international art, opened its doors in the Künstlerhaus building, a 10-minute walk from the original ALBERTINA in 2020. Together, these two art centres feature some of the best collections in Austria. Make sure to pencil them in your Vienna itinerary!
