Lovely spot in Styria where the Lipizzaners are bred and raised for their first few years. The guided tours were not available in English for our visit, but the audio guides were an adequate substitute. We actually enjoyed the chance to peruse the designated stable tour area at our own pace, separate from the large guided group. The highlight of... More

This was a great experience for horse lovers. If horses aren't your thing, you probably wouldn't enjoy it as much. We visited in the middle of winter on a weekday, and we did not see any foals or yearlings. We saw and got to pet the group of pregnant mares, two barns of stallions and a group of 4 year... More

You don't get a lot in the winter. Not much is happening and the tour is not so long. To see the horses you must take a tour which is in German. Our guide seemed so passionate, so enthusiastic but we could not understand a word. The audio guide is helpful, but after a while I gave up and carried... More

If you are at all horsey then this is an absolute MUST. The sight of the Lippizaner Stallions in the home yard and the Mares with foals in the stables is sheer magic

This attraction is more suitable for people who speak German. The introductory film did not have sub-titles in any language and I know we missed a lot of information about the farm. We did have an English speaking guide who gave us a very short tour of the barns where we saw several mares and foal, but you could see... More

This farm is beautiful! Our guide did speak very good English, but it was arranged by our tour company. Not sure if you can get an English speaker if you go on your own. Loved seeing the mares and foals. They are so cute! We saw a small portion of the morning training inside a barn. I like this farm.... More

From the perspective of two mature English speaking travellers this visit was a major disappointment. Having seen a performance of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna and purchased a program, this visit did not provide us with anything further. The two films shown are in German, one even with German subtitles! None of the displays have any non German information.... More

We went here with high hopes. As a child I learnt to ride in Vienna under the instruction of someone from the riding school so always felt a connection. Firstly on entering the cost was very expensive especially relative to other attractions in Styria and what was on offer. We had to pay extra for recorded guides as there were... More

The Spanish Riding School in Wienna gets their white horses (Lipizaner) from Piber. And this is also where the old horses go for retirement. It is an impressive and beautiful experience to go there. We've been there two times now. And we will sure be back soon. The foals - not white yet - are soo cute. But what impressed... More

We loved our couple of days in Piber where you could get up close and personal with the horses. BUT can anyone tell me the name of the hotel right next to the stables? I want to recommend it to friends but have lost the name? Please help if you can
