We drove from Graz to the farm to see the Lipizzaner horses. This was a nice spring activity, as there were several goals to see, as well as year-long fillies to pet. The Stallions were beautiful and friendly. This was a nice way to see these beautiful animals, but non-horse people may be board.

You may think that a couple of white horses dancing to classical music is a tourist attraction, but visiting the stud farm is really an experience you should not miss when in the area. At the farm, you will mainly see female horses, male horses in retirement, young horses still in training, and most lovely of all baby horses, which... More

We were there on a lovely and sunny day and could see the horses used in the Spanish Riding School. We had a guided tour in English and could see the stables, trainingring, visit the cute foals and the carrige museum. A nice shop with different things for people interested in horses. All set in a beatiful surrounding.

Despite other reviewer comments, we found it quite easy to travel from Graz to Koflach and thence to Piber. The local train from Graz stops frequently, but stops are quick, and the train is quite comfortable (no first class, but lots of leg room anyway). It would be a long and difficult walk from the train station in Koflach to... More

Wanted to take the grandchildren to see the horses in their various stages of maturity like my husband and I had seen in Slovenia. This place is not a patch on the one in Slovenia where you can see horses galore. Even the exercise to music wasn't what I'd hoped it would be, only a couple of horses moving around... More

Enjoyed our side trip to the see the magnificent horses. Only a few horses in the barn, the rest were out on the hillside fields that you could not see. Only did the audio tour. Beautiful church on the grounds.

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
