The most important piece of its kind, the Wiener Kunstkammer, is a can’t-miss part of the museum. Experience a “museum within the museum” when experiencing the world of beauty, of preciousness, of curiosities and of the miraculous.

The Albertina numbers among Austria’s leading art museums and is open to the public 365 days a year. The exhibition programme centres on the great masters of art history and the most important artists of our times. The Albertina is home to one of Europe’s largest and most outstanding collections of classical modernist paintings: The Batliner Collection. From French Impressionism, Pointillism and Fauvism (including works by Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, Braque, and Matisse) to masterpieces of the expressionist artists’ groups Die Brücke and Der Blaue Reiter (including paintings by Kirchner, Kandinsky, and Nolde) and on to the Russian avant-garde and numerous works by Pablo Picasso, this permanent exhibition presents all of modernism’s revolutionary ideas.
