A ROYAL WEEKEND AT THE SACHER VIENNA

 

 

Sarah, 26 years old, mother of Oscar (2 years old), from Brussels, Belgium 

 

 

As long as i can remember, I have always associated the city of Vienna to TV series « Sissi ». The grand decors of her palace, her beautiful ball gowns, and the top of her magnificent hair do, pressed against Franz’s chest, all these fairy-tale like images where part of my childhood, every Wednesday afternoons comfortably seated on Nonno and Nonna’s couch who happened to be huge fans of the forever beautiful and missed Romy Schneider. Today I am not a little girl anymore, but a very happy mother who cannot wait to visit the Austrian capital for the first time with my husband and our little 2 years old prince.

 

THE HOTEL OF CELEBRITIES

Upon our arrival at the Sacher hotel, we are greeted by the valet parking service and the doorman. The first one takes care to unload our luggage from the limousine, while the other takes us to the reception desk. The door man is so elegant in his work attire. He wears a uniform that harbor the colours of the hotel and a hat, that was immediately noticed by Oscar. In 2 seconds the accessory is placed on our delighted little prince’s hair. The doorman guesses our Italian roots at the pronunciation of our last name on our reservation. While we wait for our check in, the 3 of us have a conversation in our mother tongue naturally.

The decor of the reception is gorgeous. The walls are covered in red velvet tapestries with black baroque style motives. On which are hanged pictures of the celebrities that have stayed at this mythical address in Vienna. Among them we notice, our king and queen Philippe and Mathilde of Belgium, the actor Nicolas Cage, Mika the singer and of course the unmistakable and iconic Romy Schneider.

Once checked in, we receive the key to our room and leave, accompanied by our headdress-less concierge, we discover our new living space which blesses us with a breathtaking view of the historical monuments of the city center.

 

A ROOM WITH A VIEW

We cannot hide our joy to the concierge. Our room is incredible ! Our room has an extraordinary view on the Imperial Palace and the Albertina museum which houses art works of Cézanne, Modigliani, Rubens and even Raphael. We are in a dream.

The whole space is bathed in natural light. The sun rays reflect on many walls, mirrors ad go through the bay window which separated the bathroom, where we notice a gigantic marble bathtub. Lucky our child swears by bubble baths, it makes it more practical to over see the water rising 🙂

« Our room has an extraordinary view on the Imperial Palace and the Albertina museum.  »

The design is rather classic, with a baroque style. The main colours are gold, gray and beige. On the ceiling, a coloured chandelier which reminds us the one in the hall way of our Roman country house. We feel right at home.

On the living room table, we find edible welcome gifts of mostly renowned local delicacies. Between the chocolates and fruit, mini Sacher pies have found their way, this famous Viennese dessert is fought over by both locals and tourists in the hotel boutique, and i will tell you its story further on.

 

OUR« LITTLE SACHER »

Since our arrival, our little prince has been the center of attention. As we leave our room the concierge gives him a mini passport on which, just as a friendship journal, he must share his favorite colour, dish and animal as well as the nickname he wished to go by during his stay.

In the bathroom, on the side of the tub we found and elegant bath robe for children, but also baby cosmetics by Cocci Nella and a toy for the bath in the shape of Franz, the bear mascot of the hotel. Oscar is happy to see his friend the doorman with his special look at around 16h00, as he brings to our room a small cake covered in icing with a Franz this time made os marzipan and not plastic 🙂 Daddy devoured it while taking his bubble bath, Oscar is very amused by this sight.

On the desk, a beautiful illustrated book and a wonderful colouring book have been left for Oscar ,which shows the different installations and experiences of the hotel.

At breakfast, Oscar serves himself freely at the buffet exclusively made for children. Housed in a small wooden horse-drawn carriage, mini-sized, the buffet features small jars of jam and chocolate spread, fruit, bear-shaped cakes, and other lovely and delectable treats.

« At breakfast, Oscar serves himself freely at the buffet exclusively made for children.. »

At around 8 P.M, a concierge knocks on our door and delivers us some Lindt chocolate before wishing us a lovely night. One hour later a maid comes to clear our plates from dinner ordered earlier with room service and will also leave us some chocolate delights. Tonight’s plan is set : Netflix and chill with chocolates.

 

THE SACHER PIE

The hotel brings together a many interesting gastronomic addresses and experiences, however if there is one that should capture your attention is has to be the Sacher Café. This is where our hosts, locals and tourists rush to from early in the morning till the afternoon to taste the famous Sacher Pie.

Serves with whipped cream and a warm drink, this dessert was invented in 1832 by a 16 year old apprentice named Franz Sacher.This young prodigy had the prince of Mettenich taste his creation who adored it and turned it into a real Viennese institution. Thanks to Oscar’s illustrated book, we come home to Brussels with the original recipe of the most famous chocolate pie in Austria.

 

RELAXATION AT THE SPA

Early morning my husband and I take the elevator down to the spa for a moment of well deserved relaxation. We have left Oscar with a nanny from the babysitting service of the hotel. When we left the room they were both going through the illustrated book of the Sacher.

The spa is quite cozy, and is of course empty at this early hour. So we enjoy the hammam, the saunas, the rain showers and the beautiful relaxation room all to ourselves. One hour later, we treat ourselves to an incredible chocolate body massage. We cannot get enough of it! 🙂

As we leave the wellness center, the hostess shows us a full menu of specific treatments available for children from 8 to 14 years old : Manicures, pedicures, facials, etc. Children are truly kings at the Sacher Vienna!

« Children are truly kings at the Sacher Vienne! »

A HUMAN SIZED CITY

Ideally located in the historical part of Vienna, the hotel is close to the main and most visited sites of the city, for example the opera is less than 50 meter away from the Sacher.

The stroller that we reserved with our concierge is waiting for us at the entrance of the hotel. As soon as we get it we are off to visit Sissi’s apartments, only a 6 minute walk away. The museum exhibits remains of the Imperial Palace as well as an impressive silverware collection. Just like all children of his age, Oscar, has only eyes for the gift shop which is filled with souvenirs for little ones.

Many carriages can be seen in the capital. Pulled by magnificent horses, they browse the city center in minutes all the way to the Belvedere Palace, a place that we are excited to discover because this is where, among others « The Kiss » by Klimt is exposed. The site is huge and beautiful. Thankfully big enough to welcome its numerous visitors passionate about history and art.

 

IT’S ONLY GOODBYE FOR A WHILE

So many things to do, to see, and it is already time to leave the Sacher. Oscar is for one last time at the center of all attentions. We are delighted by out stay but mostly very impressed by the quality of the « Little Sacher » program, tailor made by the family who owns the establishment. There is no doubt that we will be returning to Vienna soon, to this mythical address of the old imperial city, elegant as well as family oriented, it has surpassed all our expectations. We could not have dreamed of a better place! Thank you Little Guest!
