Classic Austrian Desserts To Try When You’re In Vienna



Sachertorte is a chocolate cake that was originally invented in 1832 by Franz Sacher in honor of Prince Metternich. It is comprised of a rich chocolate cake with a layer of apricot jam in the middle. The cake is then covered in dark chocolate icing and is served alongside whipped cream. Cafe Sacher, located in Sacher Hotel in Vienna claims that only they have the original Sachertorte. Meanwhile, rival cake makers Demel’s variation features the layer of jam on top, not in the middle of the cake. The cake at Demel is also denser. We recommend visiting both and deciding for yourself.
