Description

The Spanische Hofreitschule is the oldest and last Riding School in the world where classic dressage is still practised in its purest form. This Institute was founded in 1572 and its very name gives away the fact that the horses were of Spanish origin. The Lipizzaner is regarded as the oldest classic horse race in Europe.

The superb arena - the Winter Riding School in the Vienna Hofburg (Imperial Palace) in which the Riders of the Spanish Riding School train the horses and where they perform was commissioned by Emperor Karl VI. His portrait decorates the white baroque hall built by Josef Emanuel Fischer von Erlach from 1729 to 1735. Since 1920 the presentations of classical dressage have been open to the public.

Not available during summer months mid June to mid August

The guides provided in Salzburg and Innsbruck were world class. Highly recommend the Hotel Sacher and all of the tours suggested in both cities, both very memorable and enjoyable.

My husband and I had a jam-packed itinerary on our 37 day European adventure; Panorama Tours & Travel provided exceptional service! Every arrival/transfer (to and from airport and trains) was right on time: friendly drivers went out of their way to acclimate us to our surroundings and help schlep luggage. The private tours and guides were phenomenal: Dr. Christine Horvath conveyed a wealth of knowledge about Vienna, the Wachau Danube Valley, Krems-Durnstein, the Abbey Melk, etc. Mag. Martina Gyuroka was charming on our 1/2 day walking tour in Salzburg. And our favorite guide of all was Lisa, who took us an an all day adventure to Halstatt , thru stunningly beautiful mountain villages in the "Salzkammergut"-Lake District. Lisa greeted us at our hotel the second day wearing a dirndl; such a sweet gesture after we had been chatting earlier about family and local traditions, and also directed me to a shop in Salzburg where I purchased the best-locoing raincoat ever-the "Derbe"!
