Why we choose Hotel Sacher Wien

A balance of tradition and innovation, Hotel Sacher Wien offers antiques as well as heated bathroom floors

  • Grab a Viennese coffee and slice of Sacher-Torte at Café Sacher
  • The hotel’s spa is Vienna’s sole Leading Spa of the World
  • Its wine cellar features Austrian wines—hard to get outside the country

The Hotel Sacher Wien boasts that it’s a “living tradition,” and if you don’t know what that means, you will after a visit. It was founded in 1876 by Eduard Sacher, son of the creator of the Original Sacher-Torte. Naturally, the hotel is considered the home of the world-famous chocolate cake. It’s privately owned today and has the intimacy and attention to detail of a family-run hotel without losing the splendor of its long history. There’s no doubt this grand landmark is truly Viennese—and a living
legacy.

What you need to know about the hotel

Experience the traditional (elite) Viennese lifesyle, thanks to art and antiques that shape the hotel’s atmosphere

  • The Sacher Spa features customized treatments, aroma salt steam baths, vital sensory showers, ice fountain, meditation room and “Time to Chocolate” products
  • The 2-toque (Gault Millau) Anna Sacher serves international cuisine and 1-toque Rote Bar offers traditional Viennese fare
  • The Penthouse Suites have hand-cut mirrors that reflect the city skyline and private roof terraces with unforgettable views

Thanks to a complete renovation of the 149 rooms and suites, Hotel Sacher Wien is looking better than ever at 130-plus years old. The rehab—which thankfully didn’t mess with the impressive, imperial-style architecture—resulted in original paintings, antiques, high-end rugs, silk wallpaper and marble bathrooms in the individually designed guestrooms. Plus, they have the state-of-the-art technology none of us can live without anymore. Try to nab a room on the top two floors if spectacular views are on your must-have list. And on the topic of must-haves, the six award-winning restaurants and bars are a hot local ticket and should be thoroughly explored by guests.

Where is it and what's nearby

The historic Sacher is opposite the Opera and within walking distance to the city’s most famous sights

  • The most exclusive shopping area in Vienna literally begins at your doorstep, offering high-end Austrian brands and international labels
  • Don’t miss the Spanish Riding School, where you can see the legendary white Lipizzaner Stallions go through their daily lessons
  • The Hofburg Imperial Palace draws over 300,000 visitor a year with its lavish rooms and glass structures

Vienna is not only a top cultural and musical hub in Europe, but is among the biggest cultural powerhouses in the world. The Vienna State Opera, Burgtheater, Albertina Museum and Wiener Konzerthaus are just a few of the important venues—and Hotel Sacher Wien puts you in close proximity to all of them. Austria’s cosmopolitan capital city, located on the scenic Danube River, was the seat of the Habsburg Monarchy, whose influence can still be felt in the countless castles, palaces and churches that never fail to fascinate visitors.

How to enjoy Vienna

Culturally speaking, not only is Vienna rich, it is positively opulent. Majestic architecture, eye-catching sculpture and musical heritage that reads like a Who’s Who of classical music for the past few millennia

  • See the graceful white Lipizzaner stallions in action at the 16th century Spanish Riding School
  • Enjoy upmarket shopping in the former 19th century palace, Palais Corso, at the Ringstrassen Galerien
  • For outrageously frescoed ceilings, visit the baroque State Hall of the National Library, Nationalbibliothek

Perhaps the nicest way to get to know this gorgeous city is through its coffee houses. Each has a personality of its own and menus that vary from ham and eggs to exquisite pastries although all offer delicious coffee, of course. Music is very much part of Vienna’s essence. The Vienna Philharmonic runs a packed program featuring the work of (local heroes) Mozart, Haydn, Mahler and others. The State Opera is sublime, not to mention the heart-meltingly beautiful Vienna Boys’ Choir. Even the city’s churches regularly host performances of Bach and Händel.

No introduction to Vienna would be complete without mention of its architecture. See gothic churches such as Stephansdom with its ornately tiled roof. The Museum of Fine Arts (Kunsthistoriches) is lavishly baroque, with marble, stucco ornamentation and gold-leaf throughout. Its collection, including works by Bruegel, Caravaggio and Rubens is no less impressive. The Österreichische Galerie, has a collection featuring Klimt, as well as Impressionists, Expressionists and contemporary art. Part of Belvedere Palace, the 18th century summer home of Prince Eugene, the flamboyant interiors and formal gardens are worth exploring in their own right.
