Directly opposite the Vienna State Opera, Hotel Sacher Wien opened its doors in 1876, and much like the city itself, is unapologetically lavish. Wonderful antiques and artworks line the walls, and crisp modern bedrooms are trimmed with silk, marble and gilt accents. The hotel’s namesake, the indulgent Sachertorte chocolate cake, can be sampled in two vast cafés, while the regal red damask dining room Restaurant Rote serves Austrian and international fare beneath crystal chandeliers and impressive oil paintings.
Vienna is a city of historical and architectural wonders that rewards wandering feet. Fascinated hours can – and should – be spent soaking up centuries of noble lineage in its awe-inspiring churches, sumptuous palaces and world-class array of museums like the Kunsthistorisches, filled with incredible fine arts. Favoured by presidents, politicians and royalty alike, this Belle Époque hotel is the perfect place to start, whatever pace you choose.
