As the only privately owned and family-run luxury hotel in the city, the Hotel Sacher Wien is a Viennese institution, located directly opposite the Vienna State Opera. The unique balance of maintained traditions and contemporary elements provide the most authentic sense of place. All rooms feature individually collected antiques, making it one of Austria’s largest private art collections. At the home of the Original Sacher-Torte, guests can experience a piece of history and Austrian identity at the famous Café Sacher.
The Sacher has been run by the Gürtler & Winkler family since 1934. It is one of the very few privately owned and family-run five-star luxury hotels left in the world. They are passionate about maintaining the tradition of the world-famous hotel and offering their guests the highest quality that is synonymous with the Sacher name.
