Sacher Hotels Post-COVID: How the Iconic Austrian Hotels Reopened in Style


With hotels around the globe forced to shut down due to COVID-19, saying the past four months have felt uncertain would be an understatement. How will the hotel industry overcome the challenges of social distancing, sanitation, the health and well-being of staff and guests, and other safety concerns? Would they be enough to assure guests it is safe to travel?

Sacher Hotels thought carefully about this.

With two locations, one in Vienna and the other in Salzburg, the Sacher Hotels have been iconic landmarks in their regions, with rich histories and celebrated traditions that go far beyond their signature Sacher Torte. How they could maintain the same quality of service with new safety standards?

Not only did these videos get us excited to visit the hotels, they made the reopening exciting. Yes, the staff are wearing masks, and yes, there may be fewer people in the hotel—but with adding brand new spaces, new recipes, and new packages, the Sacher Hotels have gone above and beyond to let their guests and community how much they care. This is what makes Sacher Hotels stand out. The teams are a family, and they look after every detail of their guests’ stay as if they were family.

“The best part about reopening? Finally seeing our family of colleagues again, finally welcoming our guests again in that place you love. Finally feeling how the life comes back to this hotel, like it has always been there since 1876. Finally smelling the taste Original Sacher-Torte again.” – Anton von Verschuer. 

Sacher Hotels launched three new packages tailored to suit the culinary travelers, families, and culture.
