The Hotel Sacher is in perfect location, right opposite the State Opera House and close to the Hofburg Palace and the Spanish Riding School. From here it's easy to explore the shops and museums of Vienna as well as the royal palaces and parks.
Of course at the end of the day, you can enjoy a coffee and a slice of beautiful Sacher torte, Austria's favourite type of chocolate cake, invented by Austrian Franz Sacher in 1832 for Prince Wenzel von Metternich in Vienna, Austria.
Franz's son, Eduard, opened the Sacher Hotel in 1876, and ever since then it's been the best known hotel in the city, frequently by politicians, celebrities, and VIPs.
Still in private hands and family-run, the hotel is lavishly furnished. Home to over 1000 paintings and countless antiques and artefacts, it's almost like staying in a museum. Guests at the Sacher really feel part of the city's rich cultural history.
