Right inside the heart of Vienna’s inner city there’s a calm though not-so-hidden spot, perfect for taking a breath between the checks on your traveler’s to-do list. Despite its central position, this place remains a peaceful one and I highly recommend you stop by to have an urban picnic or just to round up your Albertina visit with some moments of absorbing the urban panorama from the inside.
Also, after enjoying a classy opera session this place can be a good destination for a short late night stroll. When it’s dark already, you can see the opera building in its most beautiful appearance: illuminated by dozens of dimmed lights.
The way to get there is also worth a glance: if you’re up for skipping the express elevator or escalator that brings you right to it, you should accept the challenge and climb up the museum’s large steps. Getting a sophisticated makeover every once in a while, their design is dedicated to one of Albertina’s current exhibitions, so you’ll happen to walk upon a masterpiece of the enlightened on your way up, a different glance at every step.
