Sacher Hotel/Cafe, Vienna
The Hotel Sacher is a five-star hotel in the Innenstadt of Vienna, Austria, next to the Staatsoper. It is famous for the speciality of the house, the Sachertorte chocolate cake. There is also an art gallery in the hotel with works from the 19th century. The hotel is built where Antonio Vivaldi once lived.
The hotel was founded in 1876 by Eduard Sacher as a maison meublée. After his death his widow Anna Sacher became manager. Under her rule, the hotel became one of the finest hotels in the world, where the aristocracy and diplomats would meet. Today the hotel is owned by the Gürtler family under the company name "Eduard Sacher GmbH & Co OHG". This company also owns the Österreichischer Hof hotel in Salzburg. The hotel extended its roof for more rooms in 2005, which caused a stir with conservators.
The hotel also found fame in the German-speaking world via the popular television series Hallo ... Hotel Sacher, Portier starring Fritz Eckhardt.
