Overview

The Albertina resides on a plateau at the far end of Augustinerstra├če, beyond the Augustinerkirche. It is named after Albert, Duke of Saxony-Teschen, who bought the palace in the early 19th century and on the basis of his own enthusiasm as a collector and turned it into a place in which to display an arts collection. Today, the Albertina boasts one of the largest collections of graphic arts in the world, with approximately 50000 drawings, etchings and watercolors as well as over a million and a half printed works by all the important artists from Gothic to modern art.
