HOTEL SACHER SALZBURG
History & Story
Located in the heart of Salzburg directly on the river Salzach, the Hotel Sacher Salzburg is just around the corner of Mirabell palace, Mozart’s residence, the Salzburg State Theater and only minutes away from all other culturally important attractions. Founded in 1866, Salzburg’s only grand hotel awaits its guests with living traditions and charming local flavors, providing a unique balance of history and innovation. All 110 rooms and suites are individually designed and offer luxury 19th century feel combined with contemporary state-of-the-art comfort. Many rooms and suites offer balconies with stunning views over the river, the Fortress Hohensalzburg and the old town. Following the refurbishment of all the rooms facing the Salzach river, additional 30 rooms have just been completely remodeled. Inspired by noble Salzburg residences, these new rooms overlook the city and provide a sensible combination of local interior designs and innovative trends. To indulge your love to chocolate without piling on any pounds, the hotel’s very own „Time-to-Chocolate“ bathroom amenities provide unique experiences. The exclusive Spa features sauna, steam room, vital sensory showers and cozy a relaxation area. Treatments can be arranged in a private spa suite. Hotels guests can also enjoy complimentary access to the fitness room. Unusual for a city hotel are the many different restaurant and bar outlets which give a true resort feel within an urban space. The most typical Salzburg feel can be found at the historic fine-dining hotel restaurant „Zirbelzimmer“. Local and international specialities are served at the traditional restaurant „Roter Salon“, whilst for lovers of grilled dishes, the „Salzachgrill“ is the perfect choice. The Sacher Bar is well known as a sophisticated pre- or post theatre drink hot-spot. All restaurants and the hotel bar offer spacious outside terraces with magnificent river and old town views. Certainly hotel guests can also enjoy a piece of the Original Sacher-Torte at the „Café Sacher”, which still serves this culinary experience according to the closely guarded hotel recipe of 1832.
Sacher-in-Motion – A hotel that historic seeks for development from time to time – at least the hotel’s interior and exterior of the hotel, in which its history has been written. At the Sacher Hotels time never stands still for our guests and we would like to provide the highest possible comfort and conveniences of current times. Latest renovation was two weeks ago and we will open a new bar in two weeks.

The world famous band “Beatles” landed on March 13th in 1965 in Salzburg in order to continue their shootings for the movie “Help!”.
First stopover was at the Hotel Sacher Salzburg, where they held a press conference and enjoyed a cup of tea, coffee and a piece of Original Sacher-Torte.
Since then we named one of our Suites after them, where the guests can feel like travelling back in time and immerse themselves into the “Beatles spirit”.
