     Founded in 1876 by Eduard Sacher, the Hotel Sacher is one of the most famous hotels in Vienna. After his death in 1882, management of the hotel was taken over by his wife, the twenty-three year old Anna who ran the hotel until her death in 1929. Under her guidance, Hotel Sacher became internationally famous hosting celebrities and royalty from the Habsburgs to the present. Hotel Sacher is also home of the Original Sachertorte, the sinfully delicious chocolate cake with apricot filling.
