A grand 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.
