We thoroughly enjoyed this tour of the spanish riding school stud farm. We ended having a virtually private tour just myself my partner and my in-laws. The gentleman giving the guided tour was informative and friendly and we got to see the foals and their mothers having their afternoon exercise, a real treat.

A must see if you are in Vienna, and they are in town performing. The music, architecture, baroque riding/dressage, and history all add up to a magical experience.

While staying in Graz we ventured out to the Piber Stud Farm. The drive was fairly short and pleasant. It was not very busy when we arrived and while touring the horse areas we had them mostly to ourselves. The horses, both young and old, were very friendly and seemed eager to interact with us. The buildings were very beautiful... More

After the boss nearly fainted with pleasure at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna 2 years ago, I arranged a visit to Piber near Graz for her birthday - which happened to co-incide with the Herbstparade. We took the train from Vienna and stayed in Koflach for a few days. The event was a combination of top notch and droll.... More

Horses were really beautiful and the place itself was too, however, I find the price too much for what we got to see. there was one cinema, ring where you could watch lessons if you made it in time (we didn't), three barns with six horses each and a barn with foals and foal mares. However, we couldn't touch the... More

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
