From Fortress to Print Room

Built in 1744 on the ruins of a fortress, the Albertina museum was once a Habsburg palace. The imperial collections have evolved into a medley of paintings and graphic arts, encompassing styles from the medieval to the present; prominent artists include Michelangelo, Monet and Picasso. It also houses one of the largest print rooms in the world, with are approximately 950,000 drawings, watercolors, master prints, photographs and architectural drawings housed here. The 21 staterooms have been restored with lavish fabrics and furniture showing the progression of Habsburg taste from Louis XIV to Rococo. Don’t miss the view from the entrance terrace of the State Opera House just one block away.
