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.

Dear wonderful Readers; 

It is noteworthy that, contrary to all predictions, interest in good books is not dwindling. It spurs me and my team on to produce better, even more beautiful books. The new edition of THE STRAND (Yangon,Myanmar), for example, receives wonderful readers' feedback — thank you for your notes and mails. METROPOLE HANOI and ORIENTAL BANGKOK were relaunched in brand new edtions. The Oriental book is the first to present the (very) complete list of all authors who had ever visited. It was quite a challenge to compile it.

We dispatch all our books personally autographed (as you know).

Have a save journey!
