Hotel Sacher Salzburg

Hotel Sacher Salzburg

The Sacher Salzburg is a privately-owned 5-star luxury hotel. It is also a member of The Leading Hotels of the World group of luxury accommodations. First opened in 1866, this grand building has been transformed into a gracious modern hotel oozing comfort and style while retaining its former opulent features. 

The Sacher name became originally famous by the creation of the now-legendary Sacher-Torte. Moreover, you can still enjoy this delectable chocolate cake, from a secret recipe, in this landmark hotel in the heart of Salzburg.


This elegant ivory building stands majestically along the banks of the Salzach River. Moreover, it shelters from the hubbub of the city yet close to the center. A short walk will also take guests into the old town and Mozart's birthplace in the attractive shopping area of Getreidegasse.

Additionally, the Mirabell Palace and Gardens, the Hohensalzburg Fortress, and the city’s Cathedral and State Theater are all within easy reach of the hotel. Salzburg Central Train Station is also a short distance from the Sacher, and the airport is 15 minutes' drive away or 25 minutes by public transport.


The Sacher, Salzburg, and sister hotel in Vienna are known for first-class hospitality and superb concierge services, standards demanded by owner families Winkler and Gurtler. 

Guests enter a lobby displaying antiques, an impressive front desk, and original mosaic flooring, but the feel is that of a comfortable private home. Fine seating and soft golden lighting enhance the welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. 

Further, a grand sweeping staircase is a reminder of the Victorian splendor of the original building.

The Rooms

The owners personally oversee the décor of the 111 rooms and suites. They feature one-color themes, sumptuous fabrics, antiques, and art pieces. Besides, beautiful lamps and lighting blend modern styles with traditional crystal chandeliers, seating is deeply comfortable, and carpets are plush with patterns. 

Paneled walls and cupboards with silk wallpaper in decorative patterns make statement points in many rooms and suites. The marble bathrooms also match the comfort and lavish style of the rooms. Moreover, the deluxe rooms are spacious and attractive with color-tones of old rose, green, and white and over-large luxuriant bathrooms.

The Suites: Junior, Signature, Presidential, and Sky

These include many of the rooms' features and more space and wonderful views of the river and city center. The junior has the additional highlights of heated floors and separate bathtubs. There are also showers and luxury toiletries in the marble bathrooms. 

Expansive windows let in natural light and give a stunning river view towards the Salzach River. Moreover, the Signature suites have one or two bedrooms with extra rooms, exquisite décor, fine furnishings, and antiques. Likewise, valuable oil paintings adorn the walls. The Presidential also has a separate parlor and washroom and an elegant large bedroom. 

The New Sacher Sky Suite

Sky is a vast penthouse with stunning panoramic views over the old town with the mountains beyond, enjoyed from the private roof terrace.

Conceived/overseen by renowned designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, this two-towered suite features every luxury and comfort. This is all in a relaxing color palette of rose, cream, and taupe.

Sacher dining: Restaurant Zirbelzimmer, Café Sacher

The Sacher, Salzburg has an ample number of fine eating options for a city hotel. The star is the Restaurant Zirbelzimmer, styled in its original theme of an Austrian hunting lodge with deer stalking trophies, wood-paneled walls, and a ceiling.

Besides, gourmet dishes feature Austrian traditional fare in a modern innovative style. Roasts are especially appreciated here. Similarly, Café Sacher interprets a traditional Austrian coffee house theme with regional pastries and specialties. 

No guest can leave the hotel without a slice of the famous and original Sacher Torte, a chocolate layer cake with apricot jam filling, and chocolate ganache glaze. Also, you can purchase whole cakes to take away, and you can also order repeats online. 

This delightful room of crimson seating under a chandelier ceiling also serves lavish breakfasts and daytime snacks. Several coffee types are offered along with the luscious Austrian cakes and sweets, plus a selection of fine teas. 

Grill and Bar

The Sacher Grill is a gorgeous room with mellow-toned super- comfortable banquette seating. It is also heavily cushioned with under walls decorated with photos of actors and acting scenes. 

Diners can also sit at a traditional Kuchltisch, a long-table for sharing typical Austrian hospitality. The fine rustic-style cuisine showcases regional and globally-appreciated dishes such as Wiener Schnitzel, beef Tafelspitz, and the Salzburger. 

The Sacher Bar is a darkly cozy place for drinks, cocktails, and late-night conversation. You can also take summer night drinks on the terrace beside the river, accompanied by live piano music.

Health and Fitness Club

Luxury face and body treatments with satisfactory products and expert staff are available to hotel guests Monday-Sunday. A Nordic steam bath and sauna are also in this small but swish spa. Again, you can book state-of-the-art gym equipment, with or without a personal trainer, from the spa concierge desk.


This is a child-friendly hotel and attracts families with its ‘Petit Sacher’ kid’s program of activities, surprise welcome gifts, and special menus. Bathtime for children here is a treat with mild bubbly soaps and toiletries, ultra-soft kid’s bathrobes, and fluffy slippers. Moreover, a turn-down service and bedtime delight follow, and you can also arrange babysitting.

Other Services

Beautiful banqueting and wedding facilities are provided along with superb catering. The meeting or conference room is an impressive place with red and white shining floors and crimson seating. 

An all-white theme with stunning floral arrangements can be prepared for weddings. The resort also offers full concierge facilities and small refinements like free daily newspapers, wi-fi plus high-quality laundry, and dry-cleaning services. 


Salzburg, a famous city and the fourth largest in Austria, is divided by the Salzach River into the old medieval/baroque part and the newer area. Besides, the ancient city is famous for its architecture and birthplace of the classical composer Mozart. 

The old city achieved the status of UNESCO World Heritage site in 1996. Also, the Salzach River and Alpine trails provide plenty of scenic areas for enthusiastic walkers. Above all, there is a great deal to see and do in this city, and the Sacher Hotel provides a perfect starting place for visitors.
