Visited in September 2014 whilst on way from Austria to Venice, made a specific detour to make visit. Totally enjoyed our short but fabulous visit.

We visited mid September 2014 and took the English tour, unhurried and full of information about the breeding of the Lipizzaner horses. The tour included a walk of the grounds and paddocks where the mares and foals stayed, as well as the stables and coach house museum. The half day tour was rounded off by seeing some of the horses...

We arrived mid-morning on a beautiful Saturday in early October. We were pleasantly surprised there were few visitors, however it was unclear as to where to go or whether they were even open. We finally found the office and learned of tours, etc. We took the English tour which made the whole experience very worthwhile. We were able to ask... More

Booked the tour and was collected from the cruise ship, had a guide for the stud, recommend you do this. The Lady we had awesome, nothing was to much trouble and she had a wicked sense of humour. The history of the place was well explained and we were not rushed round the place. As it was the end of... More

The Lipica horse farm is where the famous Lipizzaner horses originally came from. If you love your peace and quiet, do not start a discussion with a Slovenian why the Austrians are getting all the praise and money for the horses, which were originally bred on Slovenian ground (the reason is of course that this dates back to the times...

I was with a group of 24 people. We have booked a guided tour. There was no show even they knew that group is coming for visit, and no possibility to watch a young horse being trained. The museum was closed and it will be closed till end of this year. Most of the horses were outside, far away where... More

In Lipica Stud Farm we would like to thank Ms. Miiaka for her review and her visit to Lipica. We would also like to explain some details about our stud farm, mostly about the renovation project we started in September 2014. With this one million euro worth project we will be able to welcome our visitors even more warmly and... More

Our tour guide was the director of the stud. He was like a walking encyclopaedia on the lipizzaner history. All the mares and foals looked relaxed and well cared for. The barns were clean and some were being renovated. It was like stepping back in time....a wonderful experience.
