  • 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.

Interesting to see the horses and riders. It is purely morning exercisecand you do not see any of the manouvers or movements of the shows. Gets busy to start with, then people start to leave after the first hour. There are 4 x 30m sessions.

the horses did nothing that could be viewed from our side of the balcony except trotting

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it was somewhat interesting. Part of the challenge with Vienna is that is overwhelming with so much to do. If you are a horse person it is an absolute if not I would weigh other opportunities.

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.
