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.

Good to not have to queue, though you need to exchange your booking for a proper ticket. Recommend you aim to stay for at least 90 mins to see several of the 30 minute training sessions. By doing this you will probably see all the different manoeuvres with the music.

Beautiful horses but would have liked to see more dressage it was repeated twice in an hour. Enjoyed the commentary and short film.

The morning training had me spellbound. So much so that I went to the afternoon guided tour as well. A most enjoyable and interesting day.

Didn't expect to only see the horses trotting (could have watched horses in a field ) one rider even yawning obviously bored and many spectators leaving. Whilst queuing the video showed the horses doing many sequences, nothing was done, the highlight was one horse going on its hind legs which was lovely but 5mins of a 2 hour show.

I would like to say this was a very simple way to prebook your training visit. Top tip you DO NOT need to turn up bang on 1000 to get it, turn up at 1030/1040 when the queue has gone down as you still queue as you need to change your electronic ticket for a paper ticket, that ticket is then valid for an entire 12months - ours was for the training session only - so if going back why not keep hold of it. Training session lasts 3hrs, each separate portion of training last 30mins, fabulous to experience. Tiqets was also a little cheaper than on the day!

An hour was enough to watch the horses doing their daily exercise.
Very repetitive.

It is necessary to exchange your e ticket for a paper ticket when you arrive, to be able to pass through the turnstiles. Choose the queue of with ticket, as it is faster.
The morning training is well worth doing.
