Vienna offers much to experience beyond the shopping venues. Since it first opened in 1869, the Vienna State Opera has welcomed the works of Mozart to Mahler. Though damaged by bombs during World War II, the venue quickly rebounded and is considered one of the world’s best opera houses. Home to the renowned torte that bears its name, Hotel Sacher has earned its five-star ranking with personal service and superlative accommodations.
