It may be because of my love for the Great British Bake Off but for me, when I think of Vienna, I think of Sacher Torte. It was therefore essential that I found some time to indulge. This apricot and chocolate cake did not disappoint, and neither did the opulent surroundings!
The Sacher Hotel & Cafe is just across from the Opera House. We had decided to queue for the standing tickets (you can find out more about that here), which involves queuing for a few hours in order to get a 3 or 4 euro ticket to watch the opera. The building alone is worth at least double the ticket price but after all that standing cake and a hot drink was a welcome treat- and very much deserved!
