Albert Berzeviczy de Berzevicze et Kakaslomnicz (Berzevice, 7 June 1853 – Budapest, 22 March 1936) was a Hungarian politician, who served as Minister of Religion and Education between 1903 and 1905.

István Tisza appointed him Minister of Education in 1903. Berzeviczy held this position until the Tisza Cabinet's fall.

When the Liberal Party, which controlled Hungary from 1875, collapsed, Berzeviczy joined to the newly-forming National Club.
