  • See the beautiful and lively Lipizzan horses in action as you witness their training in the stunning Spanish Riding School
  • Enjoy a score of classical Viennese music as you watch humans and horses work in perfect unison
  • For those who love horses this is a must-see, and for those who love history - the Lipizzan is Europe's oldest breed of horse

Experience the magic of the famous Lipizzan or Lipizzaner horses here at Vienna's Spanish Riding School. Watch 450 years of Lipizzan tradition at work as their trainers run them through the haute école or 'high school' of equine dressage set to a score of Viennese classical music.

The Spanish Riding School is one of Vienna's most beautiful buildings, but what's inside is even more beautiful. This ticket gets you into the school to witness the training exercises the world-famous Lipizzan stallions do with their trainers. You'll see soothing relaxation exercises (horse yoga?) as well as some of the more rigorous ones, too.

Originally bred by the Habsburgs to act as military steeds and royal mounts, these four-legged show-offs were once stabled in the courtyard of every royal household in central Europe. They're groomed to perfection, love to entertain, and know exactly how to enchant an audience.

With this mesmerizing experience you'll get to see some of the 'equestrian ballet' that makes the Lipizzan, Europe’s oldest and most graceful horse breed, so revered.

Very interesting to watch the training alongside the commentary it was a very worth while experience. Would suggest it’s worth a bit more to get seats on the ground floor and at either end of the arena.

The performance was enjoyable. There were alot of steps to climb to the second tier and the viewing was quite difficult from the seats. We were not allowed to take photographs as momentos of our visit.
