  • Vienna Spanish Riding School Guided Tour

    1. Vienna Spanish Riding School Guided Tour

    Vienna’s Spanish Riding School has been in continuous operation for more than 450 years. It continues to cultivate classical equitation in the Renaissance tradition of the Haute Ecole. On an exclusive 55-minute behind-the-scenes tour, visit the Winter Riding School, a gem of Baroque architecture, the Summer Riding School which houses the world’s largest oval horse walker and the stables in the Stallburg. The Stallburg is Vienna’s most significant Renaissance building, and features an arcade courtyard and the historical stables of the Lipizzaner stallions. Learn about the history of the equestrian tradition and about the Lipizzaner stallions, who are the stars of the establishment.

    I would recommend this to anyone really. The history is very interesting and the building is impressive. Our guide explained many different things about all aspects of the Spanish Riding School.

The snitzel was good as was the wine and coffee. Even though the weather wasn’t the best the boat ride on the Danube was relaxing and beautiful showing off the diversity of bienna

Its fun to see the training. Unfortunately I didn’t know there were different types of tickets so we didn’t have great seats. But we enjoyed it all the same.

Beautiful zoo with loads of animals and restaurant choices. Skip-the-line entry went smooth

Very interesting, great for a first approach to the city. The guide, very kind
