Description

No jodhpurs are required for this guided tour of the Spanish Riding School - just an appreciation of all things historical and horsey in Vienna. Join your equestrian expert guide and explore the Winter Riding School, the Summer Riding School, and the stables!

Saddle up for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Spanish Riding School, a historic institution in Vienna that makes a fascinating detour from the usual sites and galleries.

You'll be led around the Baroque Winter Riding School and the Summer Riding School with a guide, where the school's impressive history will come to life - it was founded way back in 1735!

Witness the grand architecture of this place and gain a better understanding of dressage and the history of the Spanish Riding school!

Step into the stables at the Spanish Riding School - home to the magnificent Lipizzan horses.

This special breed is born to perform the haute école or high school movements of classical dressage which, combined with their stylized jumps, looks a bit like dancing!

Insider tip

No photos are allowed of the horses in the stables. Photos stress the horses out. Plan to take all your photos in the main arena and other areas instead.

Fabulous the English tour guide was great. It was well organised and all went to schedule could have gone on asking questions for the next hour. Sadly the travel 8nformation in Vienna is sadly lacking compared with Salzburg. Could not find an understandable bus/ trolley guide so took taxi every where but had to mis the Ring tram as spent to long looking for the start ( having pre paid it) but the riding school was absolutely great.
