Housed in the former Hofburg residence, the Albertina displays one of the largest graphic art collections in the world.
Over 65,000 works on show and 1 million old master prints, including pieces from Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso, Manet and Michaelangelo.
The building itself is a fantastic piece of classic architecture in itself. Originally part of the fortification so Vienna, it was largely restored in 1745 and used as a palace.
There are actually four distinct parts to the Albertina - the baroque palace, the classical extension that connects the palace with the 15th century Augustinian monastery and the Hofburg, the Augustinian monastery itself and then the modern underground extensions.
In addition to its standard displays of art, the Albertina often has special exhibits with works of art from other galleries around the world. There are also the Habsburg State Rooms, which can also be toured while visiting.
