Enjoy the morning routine of the majestic Lipizzaner stallions and then go for a behind the scenes guided tour!
You don't have to be a horsey bore to appreciate the majestic Lipizzaner stallions as they are put through their paces in performances at the Spanish Riding School. The precision of their movements, which takes years to accomplish, means that the overall effect is close to that of a top-class ballet. Add to this the fact that it's staged in the former Baroque ballroom of Vienna’s Hofburg (Imperial Palace) which dates back to the 16th century (still resplendent with chandeliers et al) and that the riders are dressed in attire of the same era, and the result is breathtaking. The Spanish Riding School is the only classic art-of-riding institute still in existence.
Come witness these beautiful creatures in action during their Morning Exercise and then go for a behind-the-scenes look at the history and architecture of the Riding School.

Worth to see
The horses were trained very well and the riders was enchanting to watch. The building is stunning both inside and outside. We did the guided tour into the workings of the school and it's a chance to learn about the horses close up.
