Not really a training session, more exercising session. Quite dull, nice to see the horses but they don’t do much more than walk round in circles.

A bit overhyped. You are on a balcony watching 4 horses walking round an area and occasionally they break into a trot. I appreciate there's a lot of skill involved in what they do but you don't see this at this visit. I suppose if...More

Exorbitantly expensive, the only thing to see is just the horses walking around and trotting a bit. The most interesting thing that happened was when one of the horses pooped.

We very much enjoyed the impressive performance by the horses and their handlers. It was fascinating to see the elegant Lipizzan horses, being aware of the ties in the past between the Habsburgs in Austria and Spain. Equally interesting was the fact that one of...More

The stallions were not in residence so went to morning exercise. Tickets were easy to purchase at the ticket office. My wife like this better because they brought out mates and babies. Well worth the 17 euros.

This place is only recommended if you like old school circuses that is an arena with many horses running and two humans forcing commands on them. I left after 8 minutes.

We saw Piber meets Vienna and it was worth it. In our age of thrill-a-minute, flash-bang, laser-light shows, it was actually nice to see a more sedate, old-fashioned show rooted in a long history. The mares and fillies were the highlight. Check out YouTube for...More

Dear Nicolas, many thanks for the wonderful description you give us! Indeed - it as a very special atmosphere the mares and their foals are bringing into the imperial Winter Riding School. Hope to welcome you one day again, Andrea Kerssenbrock
