A special evening program awaits you at the spectacular Spanish Riding School, the winter riding school at the Imperial Palace (the former winter home of the Habsburg family). We invite you to an exclusive performance of the iconic Lipizzan horses, Europe’s oldest domesticated breed of horses.

To the accompaniment of Austrian classical music these horses and their riders will demonstrate the most demanding movements such as pirouette, passage and piaffe, and the most difficult jumps. It is a living work of art, dating back more than 500 years, in which the unity of horse and rider touches anyone who witnesses it.
