Hotel Sacher, Vienna: The World’s Top Food Destinations

January 21, 2008 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Sachertorte at Hotel Sacher ViennaListed by National Geographic's Journeys of a Lifetime as one of the "Top 10 Food Pilgrimages," the Hotel Sacher Vienna is home to the world's most famous chocolate cake. Sachertorte-- rich chocolate torte with thin layers of apricot jam, accompanied by lots of whipped cream-- was created by Franz Sacher in 1832. This divine piece of patisserie is as much a part of Vienna as the State Opera, the Lipizzaner Horses, and the Hotel Sacher itself, built by Franz's son in 1876. Enjoy a stay at this legendary hotel, just opposite the Opera, and immerse yourself in the charms of the Hapsburg Monarchy. The tasteful rooms simply ooze luxury, adorned with original oil paintings, precious rugs and silk wall coverings. And get this: the Sachertorte is available for worldwide delivery!
