    Description

    The Spanish Riding School is one of the most beautiful buildings in Vienna - and that speaks for itself! Take a specially tailored tour of the building's Renaissance architecture and the 450-year tradition of the Haute école.

    The focus is on the architecture of the building. But no tour of the Spanish Riding School would be complete without a visit to the stables and the oldest and bravest horse breed in Europe - the Lipizzaner.

    These beautiful animals and their haute-cole dressage movements have been revered for centuries and with a glance into their wise old eyes you will quickly see why.

    Visit the magnificent Winter Riding School - a jewel of baroque architecture. Go up 170 steps to see the wooden system of the attic built of no less than 2,000 individual parts. A true technical and aesthetic wonder!

    At the top of the building you can enjoy a breathtaking view of Vienna's first district and the rest of the Renaissance architecture of the imperial city from a bird's eye view. A top trip for architecture and equestrian fans!
