The Spanish Riding School in Vienna
This school dates back to the time of Emperor Maximilian II introducing the famous Lipizzaner horses into Austria in 1562. Today, it’s one of the only places where the classical style of riding preferred by aristocracy is still practiced.
There is a magnificent hall that was designed for the nobility to demonstrate their riding skills. Tickets to watch these magnificent animals perform their ballet are highly sought after so you will want to book your tickets online as far in advance as possible.
