The Archduke Albrecht March (German: Erzherzog-Albrecht-Marsch) is an Austro-Hungarian military march, composed by Karel Komzák II (also known as Karl Komzák) as his opus 136. It was named in honour of Archduke Albrecht, Duke of Teschen (1817–1895).
The march was used extensively by the German forces in World War I and World War II, especially during the departures and arrivals of U-boats. The march is also used by the Chilean Navy during military parades or marches.
