The graceful Lipizzaners perform an equine ballet accompanied by classical music. This a perfomance - albeit expensive - that is an absolute must; the agility and seeming lightness of the horses is quite amazing. The feeling of history one gets from experiencing the performance firsthand...More

This was really interesting and as we had front row seats the horses do get quite close! Would I recommend? Only if you have an interest. If it’s just because you think you should then probably don’t! I enjoyed this.

It was busy on our arrival and we could not find an area to view from the lower gallery so went upstairs and found two seats although the view is very restricted even standing up. Might be best to pay extra for the seating area...More
