Enjoy your afternoon at the Burggarten in the 1st district together with the Lipizzaner foals!
Lipizzaner horses were desired in the 16th century
when the Habsburgs ruled both Spain and Austria. Typically, young foals have a dark color and between 4 and 9 years the color turns into an elegant and powerful white. In good 300 years the type of the Lipizzaner has not changed significantly. The movements of the Lipizzaner are graceful and royal and therefore are known for their use in classical dressage at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, the oldest riding academy in the world.
In average, it takes 6 years to educate a horse for the performance in the Spanish Riding School.
The horses will be let out in the city’s central Burggarten park every day except Sundays and Mondays until 31 July from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Don’t miss it!
