This large bronze equestrian statue of Archduke Albrecht (1817 - 1895), who was an Austrian Habsburg general and a Field Marshall in the armies of Austria-Hungary and Germany, sits in a very prominent position in front of the Albertina Museum.

The statue shows the Archduke sitting confidently on his horse, wearing military garb including a feathered hat, and holding a sword in his right hand and the reins in his left. The statue is mounted on a high oblong stone plinth that contains several inscribed bronze plaques.

The statue is the work of an Austrian sculptor of German origin, Caspar Clemens Eduard Ritter von Zumbusch and was unveiled in 1899 on the 90th anniversary of the Battle of Aspen.

Very hard to miss if you visit the Albertina Museum.

It's a statue. Of Denkmal Erzherzog Albrecht. I am not sure how something like this could be either excellent or terrible. I mean, it is just a statue, of Denkmal Erzherzog Albrecht, in the middle of Vienna.

There are many equestrian statues which can be seen around Vienna, including that of Archduke Albert (Erzherzog Albrecht) which is located on the upper-floor outdoor area in front of the entrance to the Albertina Museum. The statue overlooks Albertina-platz and can be seen clearly from this area.

Archduke Albert (1847-1895) served notably in the Austria-Hungary army. His monument was designed by German sculptor Kaspar von Zumbusch in 1898-99 and depicts the Archduke in military attire, riding his horse confidently. He seems to be peering into the distance. The statue is situated upon a oval shaped pedestal with decorative bronze reliefs on each side.

Take a few minutes to view an enjoy this monument before entering Albertina Museum, if you enjoy this time of sightseeing during your travels.
