The Hotel Sacher is a Viennese institution. It opened its doors in 1876. Franz Sacher, the father of the Original Sacher Torte, invented his sweet little taste-bud teaser in 1832. Meet the legendary Anna Sacher and her 100 pet dogs, discover an old invoice proving that Her Imperial Majesty, Empress Elisabeth, had her private deliveries of Sacher Torte to the palace, see Crownprince Rudolf’s Mayerling room at the Sacher. Meet hotel guests like Graham Greene, who noted at the Sacher: ‘Here I had the good fortune to lunch with the future Duke of St. Albans’, who provided inspiring details for Greene’s The Third Man. Somerset Maugham, Charlie Chaplin, Noël Coward, Elizabeth Taylor, Ralph Fiennes, Liza Minelli, Anthony Hopkins were and are seen here. Here parades the Austria of yesteryear with its literary giants, Nobel-prize winners and nobility. And see the Austria of today as the Sacher is as much a historical legend as a modern hotel and the meeting point of celebrities, from the Queen of England to the first lady of the United States.
