The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

An amazing occasion to see Picasso’s work, together with well known impressionists . We enjoyed immensely the mixed between old and new, abstract and modern to more refined techniques.

We came recently to see the Basquiat exhibit - more on that to come - but took in the whole gallery as we do love certain artists, mainly the post-impressionists and some modernism.

To start, the gallery had a strong basis of Austrian artists, with Von Alt’s work taking up a few rooms. If you’re looking for Klimt, he’ll be found in much more abundance, The Kiss included, at the Upper Belvedere Palace. It then moved to some brilliant works by Sisley, Monet and Van Werefkin who I’d not heard of before but enjoyed immensely. I also massively enjoyed learning about New Objectivity and was introduced to Sedlacek whose works were moody and eye-catching. It must be said the notes with the paintings (all in English as well as German) are some of the best I’ve read at a gallery, precise, concise and informative, giving great context and art history.

The gallery had a great amount of Picasso’s and some of his lesser-seen work not associated with the Blue Period or cubism, some really sensational etchings he’d done in the 30s prior to WW2 during Spain’s hardest years.

The Basquiat exhibit gave great context and story to one of the wildest and most exciting artists of the last 100 years, painting a vivid picture of the thought behind his works and the lack of acceptance he felt in the established art world. It’s there for a few more months so if you’re planning a trip to Vienna definitely go.

One of the best galleries we’ve been to, a brilliant collection.

If you can only visit one art gallery in Vienna, this is it. Easy to navigate in and well laid out. Bright and well lit. And a nice little restaurant. And a gift shop thats actually not full of toys and silly gadgets.

The Albertina touts its ONE million collection of prints. Well where are they? We found maybe 50 hidden at the end of the palace rooms. Surely the gallery could find a way to show a few more.

Yes, the special shows are well done but the core of the Albertina is stored away somewhere.

The Albertina was the standout art gallery in Vienna for me. The vast collection of French painters was impressive. I also particularly enjoyed the Basquiat temporary exhibition.

We were completely blown away by the quality and fame of the painting on display. Fabulous. If you like the German Expresionists, the French Fauves, the Blaue Reiter paintings there is a real treat in store as well as old favourite from Picasso and Monet.
