Starting time
Approximately 70 minutes
  • Enter the Winter Riding School/Spanish Riding School for a unique show in the Renaissance tradition of the 'High School'
  • See the graceful Lipizzaners performing, they're Europe's oldest breed of horse!
  • Watch the horses in all stages of training, from young, boisterous colts to majestic stallions

Saddle up for one of the best horse-related performances of your life. Watch the Lipizzaners, Europe’s oldest cultural horse breed, in a special equestrian show in the unique location of the baroque Winter Riding School.

When it comes to intelligent mammals, the Lipizzaners would probably be some of the wisest. As Europe's oldest breed of horse, these beautiful horses are clever and boisterous, the result of Spanish, Italian and Arab bloodlines.

See years of training come together in a unique performance at the Winter Riding School. As one of the most dazzling venues in Vienna, it's also the oldest riding school and the only institution on the planet to have taught the Renaissance tradition of the 'High School' for over 450 years.

See young, energetic colts, and quieter, fully-trained stallions perform in the School Quadrille. It's an equestrian encounter like no other.

Visibility is not very good. I like the performance because I adore horses, but the distance is big and is difficult for standing spectators to watch.

I knew what to expect, the Spanish Riding School is world famous after all, but it was so much better than I imagined actually being there. Book early because it regularly sells out and arrive early so you can get a choice place to watch from, we arrived 20 minutes before the performance and were lucky to get a spot dead centre.
