The Spanish Riding School in Vienna is the only institution in the world which has practiced for more than 450 years and continues to cultivate classical equitation in the Renaissance tradition of the Haute Ecole - which can also be found on...more

The horses are magnificent, the setting is elegant. This is not to be missed when in Vienna. If you love horses (or even if you don't) it is worth seeing the mastery of their performance. They do travel around the world, but nothing can match...More
For anyone interested in horses, The Spanish Riding School in Vienna is a must. I didn't see a show as I'd seen one before and as I did this in my free time from a tour, was not sure of how much time I had....More
For 18 Euros per person this is a rip off. 45 minutes mostly listening to the guide, a short visit to the stables, but you can't take pictures, touch horses, Nothing! Better to pay a bit extra and take the Morning exercise show.
Not being in Vienna on a day the show was presented, this tour was the next best option. Seeing the tack room, the horses in their stable, and viewing the horses being exercised one by one in the outdoor area all made this tour well...More
Practice session of Lipizzaners with descriptions and beautiful music. Glamorous winter riding grounds, sideways canters and high stepping trots. Even for non-equestrians, it is a very good experience for 10€. Opens t 10, but go closer to 11, crowds die down, and they exercise five...More
I'm not a horse person and so I very likely don't 'get' it, but the morning exercises were just the riders leading different groups of horses in circles. Entertaining for ten minutes but then.... not. It's worth pointing out though that my wife disagrees with...More
We went to the show yesterday evening. I paid £250 for two tickets for 1 1/4 hour show most of which was a commentator speaking in German and translating to English. I thought the show was cruel. I didn't like the whipping of the horses...More
It was fantastic to learn all about the history of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. Whilst it was only a training session it was good enough to provide a flavour of what capabilities both the horse and rider can achieve together.

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The
Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
