Piber meets Vienna

At the Spanish Riding School, Vienna

The Spanish Riding School in Vienna offers a unique holiday adventure with a great tradition: as the only institution for classical riding in Renaissance-style worldwide, the Spanish Riding School is a must-see attraction on your holiday in Vienna!

For more than 440 years, equitation has been practiced at the High School of Classical Horsemanship in Vienna. The famous Lipizzaner horses and their riders will take you into a harmonious world of bonding between humans and animals.

Horse lovers’ hearts will melt at the sight of the oldest cultural breed of horses. The beauty of the animals, as well as their names, gives insight into their noble stock – a cross of Arabian, Spanish and Berber influences.

Even horse stars need a break

For the seventh time, the Federal Stud Piber institute is a guest at the Vienna Riding School this year. During the summer break, the big stars among the school’s white stallions give up-and-coming Lipizzaner stars the opportunity to demonstrate their abilities with a diverse programme.

Up-and-coming stars in the arena

From July 8 through August 3 you can have the pleasure of observing the “little ones” among the oldest cultural breed of horses straight from the stalls of the Federal Stud Piber breeding institute live.

Come and see Lipizzaner foals which are only a few months old along with the beautiful mares close up! Breeding director Dr. Max Dobretsberger sees the event as an opportunity to deliver insight into the important work of his horse breeding farm in Styria, Austria.

The Spanish Riding School as a year-round attraction

Visit the Spanish Riding School in Vienna during the normal opening times as well.
Tuesday through Sunday, the Visitor Centre at Michaelerplatz 1 is open between 09:00 - 16:00. Fridays the historic doors open during performances between 09:00 - 19:00.
