Built in 1866, this hotel has been the unchallenged social hub for luminaries of the famous summer music festival.
Salzburg sits like a baroque jewel on the banks of the river Salzach, at the northern boundary of the Alps. Shaped as much by its natural setting as by industrious human creativity, the city inspired Mozart, Strauss and Toscanini, amongst others. Intertwined with this heritage is the Hotel Sacher, built in 1866, the same year Salzburg joined the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The unchallenged social hub of the famous summer music festival, the hotel has welcomed leaders and luminaries from the Sir Karl Popper to Placido Domingo. Set on the riverbank overlooking the Baroque Old Town and the Fortress Hohensalzburg, the hotel has classically decorated rooms, featuring antiques, silk covered walls, oil paintings and crystal chandeliers. A destination in itself is the elegantly rustic Zirbelzimmer for classical Austrian cuisine.
