Discover the performances of the
Spanish Riding School

The world-famous performances by the Lipizzans – the Ballet of the White Stallions – take place in 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.
From the young, boisterous stallions to the fully trained School Stallions,

they enchant the audience with their performance in the School Quadrille, in the Schools on and above the ground and on the Long Rein.

This atmosphere and the accompanying classical Viennese music make the wonderful presentation by the rider and their Lipizzans even more enjoyable.

Insights into the Spanish Riding School

The Training will restart September 8th 2020.

The Training offers you an insight into the exercises of the riders with their Lipizzaners. You will see both the exercise of the often still grey young stallions and the fully trained school stallions - our "white stars" - in the imperial setting of the baroque Winter Riding School, accompanied by classical Viennese music.

The Training of the horses includes relaxation exercises, the refinement and perfection of lections, as well as the targeted strengthening of muscles. To keep the horses motivated the famous Schools above ground, which are presented during the performances, can be seen only sometimes at the Training.

Each stallion group is exercised according to its different training level up to High School lections.
