Why we choose Hotel Sacher Salzburg

This opulent, privately-owned hotel has been the heart and soul of Salzburg society for over a century

  • Café Sacher Salzburg brings a real Austrian “Kaffeehaus” inside the hotel
  • The Wintergarten conservatory is a spectacular backdrop for private dining or events
  • Reserve a concert ticket at midnight, courtesy of the 24-hour concierge

The number one rule of travel—especially to new places—is to go where the locals go. And the well-heeled locals flock to Hotel Sacher. The hotel is a famous meeting point in Salzburg, particularly during the music festivals, but you can also catch in-the-known residents sipping coffee in the café and tucking into some of the best food in the city at Zirbelzimmer. Follow their lead, and you can’t go wrong.

What you need to know about the hotel

The Hotel Sacher Salzburg has a city center location, traditional Austrian style and a revitalized modern spirit

  • Sacher Bar is home to the Hugo, the Cocktail of the Year, featuring Prosecco, sparkling water, elder syrup, mint and lime
  • Enjoy a slice of the original Sacher-Torte—one of the most famous chocolate cakes in the world—at the hotel café

Built in 1866 as the Grand Hotel, the Hotel Sacher Satzburg is now privately owned by two families who’ve poured their time and attention into this five-star gem. The hotel and its 113 rooms and suites recently underwent a comprehensive renovation, resulting in individually decorated guestrooms sporting original works of art, antiques, high-end carpets and sumptuous wall hangings. They’ve also installed the latest technology to make you feel at home. The result is a timeless yet contemporary style. The hotel features five restaurants and bars that are the talk of the city, along with a health club where you can get a massage, work off the Sacher-Torte from dinner and enjoy the sauna, solarium and steam room.

Where is it and what's nearby

On the banks of the River Salzburg, Hotel Sacher makes the most of the City of Mozart

  • Take a land-and-sea tour of the Lake District, an area so beautiful that Austrian Emperor Franz Josef and his family spent summers there
  • Love The Sound of Music? Join other fans who’ve visited the Salzburg location where the film was made
  • The medieval Fortress of Hohenwerfen, framed by northern Alps cliffs, conducts falconry displays that showcase still-in-use medieval training methods

Hotel Sacher Salzburg is located in the heart of Salzburg directly on the River Salzburg, delivering amazing views of both the surrounding mountains and the city. And what a city it is. Salzburg has been a giant in the music world since Mozart’s time and hosts one of the most important opera and theatre festivals in the country, the Salzburg Festival. The Old Town of Salzburg is the largest UNESCO World Heritage Site in the world, though the area around the city seems like it should qualify as well. The natural beauty is stunning, encouraging visitors to trek to the Salzburg Mountains and the picturesque lakes of the “Salzkammergut” region

How to enjoy Rest of Austria

Austria has an elegance that extends far beyond the grandeur of Vienna. Perhaps it's the mountains that form picture-perfect backdrops no matter where you look, or perhaps it's the architecture that gives even the smallest town a sense of grace

  • For 36 hairpins in just 30 miles and views that make you want to try a yodel, maybe even just a little one, take the Grossglockner toll road
  • For spectacular architectural pomp little can rival Melk Abbey, a working Benedictine Monastery and school with more gilt and marble than strictly necessary
  • Grab your skis and head to Innsbruck for old world charm and sensational Alpine skiing, not to mention bobsleigh and Zaha Hadid's Bergisel Ski Jump

Austria’s most famous exports are its skiing, the von Trapp family, Mozart, Haydn and Klimt. If you get the chance, it is well worth seeking out examples of all of these in their native territory. Gustav Klimt’s iconic work, The Kiss, is exhibited at Österreichische Galerie Belvedere in Vienna. The von Trapps, whose story was made immortal by The Sound of Music, were from Salzburg. The town’s most famous son, however, was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his birthplace is now a museum and every January the town hosts the Mozartwoche music festival.

The Grafeneff Castle summer season of open-air classical concerts make a great excuse for a champagne picnic, serenaded by some of the best music Austria has to offer. Perhaps in keeping with the Austrian tradition of giving you more than you strictly need, the lakeside town of Hallstatt has it all. Stunning views of a quaint, pointy-roofed town, nestled against mountains that drop steeply into a reflecting lake? Check. World Heritage status with exceptional archaeological finds marking it as a center for prehistoric, Celtic and Roman peoples? Check. Unrivalled hiking, canoeing, swimming, Skywalk lookout and Europe’s longest wooden slide? Check.
