Full description
Enjoy the Ballet of the White Stallions at the unique, baroque Winter Riding School at Hofburg Palace, built under Charles VI. These performances are the result of years of training for the rider and their Lipizzans. The Spanish riding school is the only institution in the world which has practiced classical equitation in the Renaissance tradition of the Haute Ecole for more than 450 years. From the young, boisterous stallions to the fully trained School Stallions, they enchant the audience with their performance of breathtaking excercises such as caprioles, Levade and many more. The physique and grace of Lipizzans are ideally suited to the High School of Classical Horsemanship. They are Europe's oldest horse breed. The exercise and preservation of the High School of Classical Horsemanship are some of the core tasks carried out by the Spanish Riding School which is inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. A particularly atmospheric lighting concept was developed by renowned multimedia artist André Heller for the performances in the most beautiful riding arena in the world. This atmosphere and the accompanying classical Viennese music make the wonderful presentation by the rider and their Lipizzans even more enjoyable. The 1.5-hour Gala Performance includes live moderation, the Standard Performance is 70 minutes long, and the Tribute to Vienna performance lasts for 2 hours.

The place, the show, the building - all totally stunning!! The show itself was incredible and orchestrated to near perfection (or as close as it can be whilst working with animals). The riding school is easy to find and get to and I would recommend the 2nd gallery as whilst it is higher up, there is no-one standing behind your seats so you are free to stand without blocking anyone's view. Totally recommend the experience.

The horses are beautiful but the acoustics were terrible...we could not understand the announcer because there are one set of speakers at the far end of the arena. This is a once in a lifetime event for the tourists that come so because of this, photos should be allowed. People posting photos and sharing photos only promotes the horses and builds your tourism. Its easy to ban flash photos and the majority of people use cell phones so the argument that this scares the horses is bogus. Tourists spend a lot of money and would love to have photos to take away. (Especially when we couldnt hear any of the announcer)

The horses were amazing! I was seated on the top level, on one of the long sides of the arena. I was only able to see the horses when they were on the ends or the opposite long side. Seating on the top row means you miss a large part of the performance. I needed to stand to see some of the show.
