Tickets for Spanish Riding School

The world-famous Spanish Riding School is the training ground for riders and their Lipizzan horses - Europe's oldest breed of horse. It's located between Michaelerplatz and Josefsplatz inside the Hofburg, in central Vienna. The 'Spanish' in the title refers to the Spanish heritage of the horses.

This beautiful building has been an equestrian training center for more than 450 years. Guests can enter and watch these amazing horses learn the ropes and reins, in preparation for their performances in the Winter Riding School (Winterreitschule) in the Hofburg.

The building is splendid and the show, narrated in German and English is full of variety. We especially enjoyed seeing the mares and foals. It's a long show to stand through which is why I'm glad we bought frint row seats along the sides. At the show, they tell you that you can see the mares and foals graze and play in the park behind the natural history museum from 5 to 6 p.m. Watching them in that lovely outdoor setting was the best experience of all.

Was a fun way to see the horses though the performance is minimal in that it’s only the young ones.
