There are numerous entries in "Kurliste" of the era, showing Albert staying in same hotel as Victor WAGNER. Presumably this is how his sister Cäcilie first met her future husband.

On a mountain hiking holiday, Albert suffered a stroke and died. Several accounts of this are to be found in newspapers - e.g.

ANNO, Wiener Zeitung, 1924-08-13, Seite 5
