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.

I expected more fabulous show but I enjoyed the very skilled horses and riders. Maybe the show is better for the people who understand riding and also the difficulty of everything horses and riders did. My place was up and next time I will take it from the first floor. It eas not show easy to see from upstairs. Nice stallions and skilled riders.

The Spanish Riding School performance of the Lippizaner stallions is everything you expect and want. The horses are magnificent and the pageantry is traditional and awesome. A couple of tips: First, I did not notice or realize until I went that I had Standing Room tickets. IF this was stated online, I did not notice it. So, if you show up as instructed at 10:30am for an 11am performance that lasts about an hour and fifteen minutes, it is a long stand. I’m not sure if there is any way around that, because about 80% of the room is standing room. Unless you’re in the Royal box!! Which leads to my second, even better tip: Get there early, and then try to claim standing space behind the one row of seats at THE END of the arena. Most seating is on the sides, but there are huge columns the length of the arena, so almost everyone has an obstructed view. Even the people sitting. So if you can sharpen your elbows and plant your feet early, you will have the best possible view.
