Vienna – a lady embodying the charm of the Habsburg monarchy welcomes admirers to the city's beauties. Among those is the delicious sweet legacy – the Sachertorte. The creator of this unique cake was Franz Sacher, whose son built Hotel Sacher – a worthy temple for the sought-after delicacy. Franz Sacher would certainly be proud of his legacy today, because the kingdom of the Sacher family is being looked after by a very efficient and enterprising lady, Elisabeth Gürtler. She sensitively upholds the family legacy and the Sacher name, which has become a recognised brand of prestigious hotels. In addition to Vienna, a Sacher Hotel is also found in Salzburg and even as the attractive Sacher Alpine Resort in Seefeld.
