Albertina, located in the historical heart of Vienna, is a part of the Hofburg Palace and counts as the world's largest graphics collection with over 1.1 million pieces of art.
The museum includes large, modern galleries and holds permanent and temporary exhibitions.
You will start this self-guided tour at the museum entrance and visit the staterooms that served as former residences of general commandants and governors of the Habsburg Monarchy from the 18th until the 20th century.
You will enjoy the fabulous interiors while strolling through 20 carefully decorated and completely restored halls with valuable wall coverings, chandeliers, fireplaces, stoves, inlaid floors, and furniture. It's an impressive time travel back to the wonderful world of one of Europe's most beautiful classicist palaces from the Habsburg era.
You will see a few rooms that still exist in their original states, although the palace was almost destroyed during WWII. The tour ends in those halls that serve as exhibition spaces for outstanding and valuable works of the Albertina collection and host the best-known works of Albert Durer, Leonardo Da Vinci, Gustav Klimt, and Oscar Kokoschka.
After the tour inside the staterooms, you can visit the other exhibition halls of the museum because your ticket is valid there as well.
