Full description

Gain interesting insights into the routines of the riders and their young Lipizzaners as you visit the Spanish Riding School of Vienna. See how the traditions, which have been practiced at the school for the last 457 years, remain almost unchanged to this day.

Observe the future stars of the Spanish Riding School at their first training sessions in the imperial ambiance of the baroque winter riding school. Listen to commentary and classical Viennese music that accompanies the session.

See the training for the basic walk, trot, and canter, the foundations for every equestrian rider and horse. These are the main exercises for these young Lipizzaner talents.

Such a good morning watching the horses, I'm so glad I did it! I had a standing seat and it was great, I simply booked my ticket the night before. It was simple and easy to find too and the staff were so so helpful. The commentary was excellent too. Thank you!

Ik kende Get your guide niet maar boekte de middag van tevoren en de tickets lagen keurig klaar bij aankomst. Let wel op dat je ze minimaal 45 minuten van tevoren moet ophalen - dat las ik niet bij boeking dus dat was best vroeg De training was voor mij interessant omdat ik vroeger paard reed maar voor man en kinderen wel saai. Longeren en basis stap, draf en galop met ondertussen in het Duits en Engels uitleg over de paarden en het ontstaan van de rijschool. Het gebouw is - zoals zoveel in Wenen ook weer adembenemend mooi!
