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 German-speaking 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 for a fascinating detour from the usual sites and galleries.

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

Witness the grand architecture of the institution and gain a better understanding of dressage and the history of the Spanish Riding school.

You can also see 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 remarkably like dancing!
