An exclusive look behind the scenes of the Spanish Riding School.

You will visit the unique baroque Winter Riding School, the Summer Riding School with one of the world’s largest oval horse walkers, and the stables of the Lipizzan stallions and the horses.
After visiting all of that we guide all the way up to the monumental, impressive three-story roof structure.
An Architectural tour back to the year 1700, when the Academy was built. Original timber constructions, about 120 feet above the street level.
Not a lot of guests have the permission to be as „behind the scenes” as you will be – enjoy it.
