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.

It was interesting to see how these nice horses and professional riders are doing their training and listening nice Viena music.
Four group with 5 horses in each. Each group is doing training in about thirty minutes. The training it's almost the same for all of them so if you don't want to stay during the all training, you don't n have to worry you will miss something interesting.
It something that you have to see!

Fun to see the horses and riders practice! The speaker tells you a little about the work that goes into training these incredible horses. Limited seating (standing room is also available) so go early as there was a long line by 10am.

Förbokning av biljetter onödigt.
Vimsig personal vid entrén. En sa det gick bra att visa biljetten via appen, men det var fel -skulle bytas till biljett i kundtjänsten.
