Great art often hides in less-famous sights — like the Albertina Museum, in a distant wing of Vienna’s Hofburg Palace. Throughout my travels this year, I’ve noticed that huge crowds don’t always gravitate to the most enjoyable sights. If you read your guidebooks, you’ll know about attractions where peace and elegance trump crowds and chaos. Here at the Albertina, I’m enjoying some quality time alone with the creative genius of my favorite artists.
