The Albertina is one of the most frequented museums of Austria and a highlight for all visitors of Vienna. With its famous graphic collection, the Albertina is considered one of the most important museums in the world. Here, one can find Dürer’s “Young Hare” and Klimt’s studies of women. Once the largest Habsburg living quarters, the Albertina sits majestically on the south end of the Imperial Palace on one of the last remaining bastions of Vienna.

The last enlargement of the collection – the Batliner Collection – makes the Albertina Austria‘s only museum in which the hitherto existing gap in international, classical modern art can be closed with major works of French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, the German Expressionism, the Fauves and the Russian avantgarde. The highlights are the over 30 Pablo Picassos, including ten major paintings and many drawings
