"Spanish Riding School" Spanische Reitschule - Spanish Riding School Tip by aliante1981

The Spanish Riding School occupies a number of buildings on the Michaelerplatz and the Josefsplatz by the Hofburg in central Vienna. Performances of beautiful snow-white Lipizzaner horses dancing take place in the Winter Riding School, shown in the photo above. The riding hall looks like an elegant ballroom--and, in fact, it has hosted royal balls and other fancy-dress events during its nearly 300-year history. You can book tickets online and itýs better to do so in advance, since 1 hour and 20 minutes long shows are sold out weeks before the actual performance.
