It is part of the city like the Opera House, the Prater ferry wheel, the Fiaker horse carriages and the Lipizzaner horses. The Sacher, as the Viennese call it, combines contemporary Viennese comfort and luxury with the charm and feel of the old Habsburg monarchy.
In 1876, Eduard Sacher founded the Hotel Sacher in Vienna. He was the son of the creator of the Original Sacher-Torte, a unique chocolate cake. Soon after its creation, the Sacher became a world famous meeting point for politicians, artists and the aristocracy.
Since 1934, the hotel is run by the Gürtler family, who is very keen on maintaining the hotel’s old tradition.
