In 1865, Eduard Sacher, son of the inventor of the Original Sacher-Torte, Franz Sacher, opened his first delicacies shop just next to what would soon become the Vienna State Opera. Its rapid success enabled the confectioner’s son to soon move on to bigger things, inaugurating the Hotel Sacher Wien in the Philharmonikerstraße in 1876.
The meaning of family at the Hotel Sacher is not restricted to a name. The hotel’s personnel are very much an extension of the family history and the values at the heart of the Sacher approach to hospitality. To this day, the trusted staff serves with devotion to excellence, many of them remaining with the hotel for their entire career. This unique blend of elegance and family heritage is what guests can expect each time they stay at a Hotel Sacher.
