Fodor's Review

This not-to-be-missed collection is home to some of the greatest old-master drawings in Vienna—including Dürer's iconic Praying Hands and beloved Alpine Hare. The collection of nearly 65,000 drawings and almost a million prints was begun by the 18th-century Duke Albert of Saxony-Teschen. All the names are here, including Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Rembrandt. The Batliner Collection includes excellent examples of French and German impressionism and Russian avant-garde. The mansion's early-19th-century salons—all gilt boiserie and mirrors—provide a jewel-box setting. The excellent Do & Co restaurant, with a patio long enough for an empress's promenade, offers splendid vistas of the historical center, and the Burggarten is the perfect place to take a break.
