This year the Spanish Riding School celebrates its 450th anniversary. This long history of horsemanship is unique all over the world. The white stallions can be watched at their morning training or be admired at the perfect and commented show, where horse and rider show their art. In the special show "A Tribute to Vienna" the horse ballet alternates with musical interludes from the Vienna Boy’s Choir – You can not experience more at the same time and place in Vienna. You get a very special impression by a tour of the stables, or completely new architectural tour that takes you all the way up into the attics of the baroque Winter Riding School including the previously inaccessible baroque roof structure.
Celebration: the annual summer ball - Fête Impériale- takes place 26.06.2015 and starts the anniversary shows 25.06. – 27.06.2015 at Heldenplatz.
Fiaker – the horse-drawn carriages – are part of Vienna’s old town since more than 400 years. A Fiaker has space for up to four persons and offers a special kind of sightseeing. Even big groups can use the Fiaker for a sightseeing tour. Maybe a glass of sparkling Austrian wine awaits the participants.
On the one hand there is the new campus of the University of Economics, right next to it Vienna’s flagship urban development area "Viertel Zwei" with the OMV Tower. Here almost nothing changed: Wiener Trabrennbahn Krieau. Known for: harness racing and horse betting. At the major racing events - the derby up to 12.000 guests arrive. People are dressed up, the ladies wear hats and those days reveals the glamor and appeal. But not only for horse races Trabrennbahn Krieau offers a unique setting. Even exclusive events for up to 3.000 people can be organized here.
