  • See the beautiful and lively Lipizzan horses in action as you witness their morning training in the stunning Spanish Riding School
  • Enjoy a score of classical Viennese music as you watch man and horse work in perfect unison
  • For those who love horses this is a must-see, and for those who love history - the Lippizan is Europe's oldest breed of horse

Experience the magic of the famous Lipizzan or Lipizzaner horses here at Vienna's Spanish Riding School. See the intelligent, lively Lipizzan horses in action as their trainers run them through the haute école or 'high school' of classical dressage - including their spectacular jump kicks. Watch 450 years of Lippizan tradition at work, as horse and rider take to the grounds, accompanied by classical Viennese music.

The Spanish Riding School is one of Vienna's most beautiful buildings, but what's inside is even more beautiful. This ticket gets you into the school to witness the training exercises the world-famous Lippizan stallions do with their trainers. You'll see soothing relaxation exercises (horse yoga?) as well as some of the more rigorous ones too.

You may even see some of the acrobatic School Jumps these horses are known for. They're not practiced every day, but you may get lucky. The whole experience is set to a score of Viennese classical music.

Originally bred by the Habsburgs to act as military steeds and royal mounts, these four-legged show-offs were once stabled in the courtyard of every royal household in central Europe. They're groomed to perfection, love to entertain, and know exactly how to enchant an audience.

With this mesmerizing morning experience you'll get to see some of the 'equestrian ballet' that makes the Lippizan, Europe’s oldest and most graceful horse breed, so revered.

If you horsey don't miss it. As good as the displays. Great to watch the trainers and riders at various levels. Don't miss popping across the road too to see the stable and lads leading them through to the school if your horse mad!!!

Horses going around and around and around. No practising of set pieces - nothing. Just exercising them. People excited in droves. And if you really want to go, ignore the lines, just push to the front. They won't remove you and you'll be ahead of the suckers who bother to get there early.

Although booking tickets online these tickets do not get you through the turnstiles into the viewing area. You have to collect a turnstile ticket from the ticket desk where ther are long queues. But don’t worry simply take the right hand gateway to the front of the queue and exchange your online ticket for a turnstile ticket which you will also need to EXIT the arena. A wonderful experience for all the family.

Fantastic experience. We sat and watched for two hours fascinated by the training of all the horses at different levels. We have a teenage daughter who tolerates sightseeing to say the least but she has her own horse and this experience was a fabulous part of our trip! I am sure we will return at some point.
