Vienna Rathaus at Night Legendary historic hotels in Vienna always welcome new guests, and the luxurious Sacher Vienna is one of them. The iconic hotel was founded by Edward Sacher, son of the famous pastry chef who gave the world the fabulous cherry cake that was later named after the maker. The historic hotel greeted its first guests in 1876. Four years later, the owner of the hotel married Anna Sacher. She managed the hotel after her husband’s death and greeted many famous and noble people who stayed in it.
