Indulge in an authentic Sachertorte at the Hotel Sacher

(Hotel Sacher)

Even if you haven’t been to Vienna, you might have heard of Sachertorte. This rich dark chocolate and apricot cake is made from a secret recipe, and although imitations exist, you can try the real-deal at the Hotel Sacher. This hotel is the ultimate old-world experience, with its dark wood-panelled lobby and red-coated porters. Rooms range from traditionally luxurious, with high ceilings dripping with chandeliers, to modern pads overlooking the Staatsoper. Grab some famed cake at Cafe Sacher (guests can skip the queue), sip cocktails in the elegant Blaue Bar, or try the hotel’s culinary delights at the Grüne or Rote Bars.
